Mini Show Call to Artists 2019!

Sunday, January 20, 2019 - 5:00pm

On March 9th, 2019, the Zootown Arts Community Center will celebrate its 7th Annual {mini} Show Benefit Auction at Missoula's historic Wilma Theater. This gala event brings together Missoula's creative community to celebrate all things mini. This year's festivities include mini and MEGA art exhibits with silent and live auctions, a mini dessert competition/auction, and more! 

You may submit to the "mini" category, the "MEGA" category or both. This is the ZACC's biggest fundraising celebration of the year. Your donations made to the mini show support year-round programming and arts education for our community.

Important Dates:
Sun, Jan. 20th - Last Day to Submit Artworks
Mon, Jan. 28th - Notifications Emailed
Tue, Jan. 29th - Sat, Feb. 2nd - Deliver Artworks
All artwork must be framed and ready to hang. If you need a shelf or a pedestal please let us know in advance.
Fri, Feb. 8th - Second Friday Opening @ the ZACC 
Sat, March 9th - "mini show" @ The Wilma

Submission Requirements: Apply on Submittable
In total, artists may submit up to three (3) separate works for consideration. Any medium is welcome. Works will be jury selected. 
Think small - Mini Works must not be larger than 12" in any direction, INCLUDING THE FRAME! Triptychs and Diptychs cannot be larger than 12" in any direction all together. Due to the size of our mini show easels, the ZACC will not except any work that does not follow these guidlines.

Or, think BIG - Mega works must measure at least 3 feet in at least one dimension. 
You may choose to give a 50%, 75%, or 100% donation of the final sale prices. Bidding will start at half the declared value (artists, please consider what your works have recently sold for in determining this. Minimum declared value is $100). Only the works jury-selected will be considered for the show; you may not substitute.

Artist Benefits:
Inclusion in our 7th annual "mini show" group art exhibition and silent auction @ the ZACC.
Invitation to the "mini show" cocktail hour during our silent auction @ the Wilma Theater.

Artists who choose to donate 100% of sales have the opportunity to purchase one (1) half-price ticket, which includes cocktail hour and dinner, to the 7th annual "mini show" benefit auction. Reserve your half price tickets early, we have limited seats and the "mini show" sells out quickly.
