JNSA Open Call for Window Project

JNSA Open Call for Window Project

The Jessye Norman School of the Arts is inviting four emerging artists to participate in the JNSA Window Project Display and Gallery Show. The show provides an opportunity for new and emerging artists to showcase their work in a professional gallery.

The JNSA window project selects an artist for one of four 10 week display periods throughout the year. Each artist’s work will be enlarged to full window size.

At the end of the year, all 4  artists will be invited to participate in a group exhibition in the Ann and Ellis Johnson Gallery of Art.
