Made in Michiana: 35 Years of Best of Show
"Made in Michiana:35 Years of Best of Show" features 38 works of art in all media that have received the coveted BEST of SHOW Award in the annual Elkhart Juried Regional competition in the past 35 years. Beginning in 1979, the Midwest Museum of American Art created an opportunity for area artists to compete in showing their work. As a competition, the Elkhart Juried Regional became the most important show for artists to have their work displayed in as they first sought recognition and prize monies. What began as a 10-county region geographically today encompasses a now 22-county area described as Michiana.
This show continues until Sunday, October 5, 2014.
