Event Details

For more than six decades, the Evansville Museum has exhibited and collected contemporary regional art through the presentation of an annual Mid-States competition open to artists residing the six states of Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio and Missouri. Some of this region’s most accomplished artists and art educators have been selected to show their work in the Mid-States exhibitions; and the competitions have importantly encouraged the participation of young, emerging artists. The 59TH MID-STATES ART EXHIBITION, on display from December 9, 2018 March 3, 2019 in the OLD GALLERY, will feature paintings, drawings, prints, collage, sculpture, and mixed media work.

Juror for this year’s competition is Philip R. Jackson, Associate Professor of Art and Painting Area Chair at the University of Mississippi in Oxford. Mr. Jackson’s work is included in the Evansville Museum’s permanent collection and his paintings were featured in a solo exhibition here as part of his appointment as the Museum’s Martha & Merritt deJong Artist-in-Residence in 2008.

This exhibition is presented through a grant from the Efroymson Family Fund.
