You may enter up to three pieces of recent work. The maximum size of pieces that can be displayed in the locked cases is 18″ x 18″ x 18″. Each display case is fitted with an alarm.

If you plan to submit wall art, please note that it can be fitted with an alarm ONLY if it can be securely attached to the wall. If your wall art does not lie flat against the wall or moves when people walk by, it cannot be fitted with an alarm. Also, artists planning on submitting very large or heavy pieces should plan on delivering and installing them at the Convention Center. Please contact if you have any questions about the suitability of your wall art.
