The Topeka Competition celebrates national artists working in three-dimensional media. It offers a unique opportunity within a public library setting to view the newest, most innovative work in contemporary art and crafts. Our juror is nationally-recognized Renée Stout who is known for assemblage artworks concerning her personal history and heritage.
Exhibit Theme | History plays a role in defining our times, our communities, our perspectives, and ourselves. Work submitted for this year’s Topeka Competition must express “history” in some form, be three-dimensional, and include an artist statement about the piece. Artworks will be judged on:
- Originality and technical excellence
- Connection to the theme
- Artist’s perspective on the theme
