Call For Art

A Virtual Exhibition Event

Because of our dual commitment to protecting our community from COVID-19 and to honoring and celebrating artists with disabilities, our Call for Art exhibit is online. You can view all 229 works of art here on our website. We will announce the winners of this year's exhibition in the same four categories as in the past: Adult, Young Adult, Youth, and Child.

The winners will be honored in an online virtual award ceremony, and receive their awards in the mail. We hope you will help us make this virtual event as special as the in-person celebration we had planned. Please stay tuned for more updates and information -- we can't wait to share all the art with you!

Each year, ARTS for ALL Wisconsin invites submissions of artwork from Wisconsin residents with disabilities ages five and up, and receive hundreds of submissions in a wide variety of media. All artwork submitted is displayed in Visual Expressions: A Call for Art Exhibition at the ARTS for ALL Wisconsin Art Center and Gallery each spring for over three weeks.

Submissions are juried by arts professionals who look for creativity, originality, and craftsmanship in selecting ten artworks to be added to Creative Power, ARTS for ALL Wisconsin’s Traveling Exhibition. The visual art exhibition provides public recognition of hundreds of individuals with disabilities at the Call for Art Event. For more information, please contact Debra Scheibinger, Art Director.
