May 21 – September 12, 2021
Sioux City Art Center Selects is a regional juried/curated exhibition with accompanying programing designed to create a more meaningful experience for both the selected artist and the audience. The call for submissions is open to all artists in Iowa, as well artists living within a 300-mile radius of Sioux City. Eight artists were selected based on digital images of artwork, with specific selections for the exhibition chosen during follow-up studio visits by the Art Center’s curator and director. The goal of the exhibition is to showcase contemporary regional artists of superior quality, outstanding creativity, and displaying a consistency of aesthetic vision. The Sioux City Art Center organized the inaugural Sioux City Art Center Selects exhibition in 2016, hosting a second installation in 2019.
In addition to the exhibition, during the opening weekend, May 21 – 23, 2021, exhibiting artists will participate in a program called The Artistic Experience. Due to ongoing uncertainty about the Coronavirus Pandemic at the time of the Quarterly Calendar publication in January, plans for The Artistic Experience remain flexible. The eight exhibiting artists will give presentations (either in person or via a digital platform) on the creative development of their work.
