The Farm: Images from the Heartland 2014: Call for Entries


The Lake County Heritage Farm Foundation together with the Lake County Discovery Museum have issued a call for entries for artists, eighteen years or older, from Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana. The topic of The Farm: Images from the Heartland is farm scenes: buildings, equipment, animals, fields, crops, or people.


New this year: separate juried divisions for two-dimensional art and original photography.


The entry period for this contest is now closed. Artists selected for participation in the exhibition will be announced here in mid-July.

Winning artists will be eligible for a $300 Grand Prize, $200 first and $100 second place awards in each division. A Special Award of $250 will be given for the best image of a Lake County, Illinois, farm scene.


Winning artists’ work will be on display at the Discovery Museum, located in the Lakewood Forest Preserve, from August 23 through November 4, 2014.
