Door County community members will have an opportunity to hear directly from the panel of jurors for the 42nd Annual Juried Exhibition which opened in September at the Miller Art Museum. This exhibition features 47 works by regional artists in a variety of mediums. On October 12th at 12:00 p.m., the jurors will have a panel discussion that offers a unique view of the reasons why they chose the art exhibits and gives background for their qualifications to be a juror. Elizabeth Meissner-Gigstead, Director of the Miller Art Museum, is looking forward to again providing an opportunity to get an inside perspective to the jurying process.
The museum is pleased to be soon recognizing their anniversary in November. Over the years, the museum has grown and is known for its innovative exhibitions. In concert with their mission, they boast over 1000 works in their permanent collection plus seven changing exhibits that rotate throughout the year. In addition, they continue to do travel exhibitions and fill their niche in the community as they expand programs and improve their space. Strategic plans are currently underway to further engage all ages and new art mediums.
