4th Annual Bridgeport Art Competition

Calling all Chicago artists to come and participate at this year’s Bridgeport Art Center annual competition! Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome- the only requirement is that participants must live or work within 150 miles of Chicago, just to keep the competition local. The judging of entries will take place at the newly refurbished art gallery in the historic Bridgeport area on February 26 at 7PM, and the gallery will be open to the public from then until April 1.
If you have painting, drawing, photo, mixed media, or sculpture work, apply now! The deadline for applications is January 30! Also there are monetary prizes to winners for specific categories, but really, no matter the style, medium, or skill level, it’s truly an honor to participate at this well-respected and diverse event.
