Call for Artists: Art from the Heartland

The Indianapolis Art Center is excited to host Art from the Heartland, a biannual juried exhibition of artwork created by artists in the Midwest area. Highlighting artists from Indiana and surrounding states, this exhibition looks to survey Middle America and celebrate the voices of contemporary art that lie therein. Prizes include cash awards totaling $4k, with two artists being chosen to host their own solo show.

JUROR: Bryn Jackson is an interdisciplinary artist, curator, and filmmaker who lives and works in Indianapolis, Indiana. He has exhibited in a number of galleries, clubs, universities, and anarchist spaces in New York, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, and Los Angeles, and his work – which ranges from photography and print to digital video and interactive media – has been published by Creeps Annual and Papercut Press. Jackson currently works as Assistant Curator of Audience Engagement and Performance at the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields, where his practice focuses on diversity in representation and equitable access to community resources.
