The Hannibal Arts Council (HAC) is looking for artworks that showcase the many modes of transportation and getting around for its upcoming open exhibit titled Transportation. The exhibit will be on display at the Hannibal Arts Council, 105 S Main St, from June 7 through July 6 and is the council’s Bicentennial-themed open exhibit for 2019.

Area artists are asked to use their imagination to create a new piece of art or submit a piece they already have which features transportation as the central theme. These could be modern modes of transportation or historic ones like steamboats, trolleys and horses. HAC is looking for paintings, photographs, sculptures, mixed media and any media which fits the theme.

Artwork may be dropped off at the Hannibal Arts Council from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, June 3 or Wednesday, June 5. Up to two pieces in any media category may be entered, 2-D or 3-D. Submitted pieces may be paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, mixed media or any media. The exhibit is open to youth and adults 13 and up residing within a 50-mile radius of Hannibal and both professional and amateur artists. There is no fee to include work(s) in the exhibit and no size restrictions. All works must be properly framed or ready for hanging. Entries may be for sale.

Guidelines, exhibit details, artist registration form and artwork labels are available on the Artist Opportunities page at hannibalarts.com.
