 Fun House reimagines Barrett Art Center’s gallery spaces as the site for all that a Fun House offers: the marvelous, disorienting, seductive, disquieting, and surreal. We invite artistic approaches to these concepts across a variety of media: painting, photography, sculpture, wearable art, digital art, textiles, ceramics, installation, and video. 

Selected artwork will be presented in our atypical venue: the intimate galleries of BAC’s 1840s Greek Revival townhouse. Our former domestic spaces remodeled as galleries create a visually-compelling setting for contemporary and cutting-edge work.  

Artists will be notified approximately three (3) weeks after the deadline in an email about the selection status of their entries. 

Submitting Entries:
BAC Members: $30 for the first three images plus $5 for each additional image up to 15.
