Mediums to consider are 2-D applications painting, drawing, photography, relief work and/or sculpture. Selections will be based on the submitted designs and the artistic merit as well as the portfolio of each submitting artist.

The selected artwork will remain the copyright of the Artist and all licensing rights therein. Please note, however, that a release will be required for images of the completed work and/or submitted renderings, which will be used by the museum and its staff for marketing and publication of museum promotional materials.
