30 artworks in 30 days. 

This annual challenge pushes artists to refine and often redefine their work. With the goal of making a complete artwork every day for a month, past artists have found fresh insight about their practice and established new methods of approaching art making. Do you have what it takes to take on the 30x30 challenge?

This is a curated opportunity to show a series of artwork. We will notify artists who are selected before they begin the 30 days of making. To enter, we are looking for 3 to 5 samples of your existing artwork that reflects the kind of work you intend on exploring during the challenge, if selected. Please do not make the 30 artworks before you are notified of your selection!

If selected, each artwork must be 6" x 6". All artworks must be able to be securely mounted to the wall. There will not be any pedestals utilized in this exhibition. Command strips and temporary hanging hardware will not be accepted for 3D artworks.
