Call For Art

Call for Art is an entirely FREE program for participants.

All artwork submitted for Call for Art 2021 is included in our Virtual Call for Art Exhibition. You can find each gallery of the Exhibition under Useful Links. Submissions for our 2022 Call for Art will open in November 2021.

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 under Useful Links.

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


A Note on Viewing Art and Reading Poetry

We share the work of artists because we believe that art is a universal and essential language that challenges people to respond to the world, look beyond themselves, and celebrate diversity by building bridges between people, across cultures, and through generations. We also believe that art can be a tool for healing.

We make a point to share ALL the work submitted through our Call for Art.

We do not censor art or attempt to limit the imagination, creativity, or the essential individual voice of any artist. This means that the viewer of artwork should be mindful of the potential to encounter imagery that may not be suitable for everyone. The themes or visual elements of some artwork may be mature, graphic, or simply not in line with an individual viewer's personal taste. And that's ok. 

We ask only that you be aware of this and if you choose to view the art or read the poetry that you please join us in appreciating the artists for the courage of their expression.
