Title Call for Entry: Large Works Purchase Prize Competition
Organization McKinney Performing Arts Center
Closing Date Friday, March 15, 2024
Location McKinney, TX

’Unique by Nature’ Juried Art Competition and Exhibition is hosted by the McKinney Performing Arts Center (MPAC) with help from Arts and Music Guild volunteers.

We created the Juried Art Show and Exhibition to build a public and permanent art collection for MPAC. Artists from all over the state of Texas submit work for cash prizes and the chance to have their pieces hung in our historic halls.

ONE large-scale work will be awarded a $6,000 Purchase Prize and will become part of MPAC’s permanent and public art collection. The large-scale work must be 36″ on any dimension (not including the frame). No 3D work will be considered for the Purchase Prize.

Based on received applications, 10 large-scale pieces will be selected for the show.

Daisha Board of Daisha Board Gallery, Dallas, Texas, will jury .JPG submissions, select finalists, and choose the Purchase Prize in person.

Please see the Unique By Nature Prospectus for additional information, including the opportunity to submit work to the Non-Purchase Prize Category, which is also juried and judged by Daisha Board.
