VSA Wisconsin’s annual Call for Art is seeking artwork in all mediums created by Wisconsin artists with disabilities. This Call for Art has three age categories: youth (5–15), young adult (16‒21) and adult (22+). Artists are invited to submit up to two original works. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 15, 2018.

Guidelines and the submission form can be found at All submitted artwork will be displayed in an exhibition at the VSA Wisconsin Gallery in Madison from April 16–May 5, 2018. Ten works will be selected for “Purchase Awards.” Those works will be purchased by VSA and exhibited around the state in a traveling exhibition. Winners are selected by a jury of arts professionals, who will look for creativity, originality and craftsmanship.
