Call For Art

We're Planning Post-Pandemic Programs. Will you help?

As the landscape of COVID-19 continues to shift and vaccination rates increase, ARTS for ALL Wisconsin is assessing options for future programming, including the potential return of in-person programming in some form. We are looking to you -- participants, teaching artists, families, support agencies, everyone -- to help guide our efforts to offer programs and support that meet the needs of our communities.

Please share your thoughts and suggestions online about the future of programming at ARTS for ALL. You can also download and complete a printed copy. Please mail paper copies to our Madison Art Center at 1709 Aberg Avenue, Suite 1, Madison, WI 53704.


Poetry theme this year is Home.

Call for Art is an entirely FREE program for participants.

All artwork submitted for Call for Art 2021 will be included in our Virtual Call for Art Exhibition.

All submissions are juried by arts professionals who look for creativity, originality, and craftsmanship in selecting ten visual artworks and four poems to be added to Creative Power, the ARTS for ALL Wisconsin Traveling Exhibition. The exhibition provides public recognition of hundreds of individuals with disabilities each year.

Our most recent Call for Art winners, included in our current Traveling Exhibition, can be found in the links at right.

Please contact us If you have questions or need more information.
