Call for Artists: 50th annual Midsummer Festival of the Arts




Now in our 50th year, the Midsummer Festival of the Arts remains committed to providing a service to artists and to our audiences. Held at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, WI, the Festival nurtures connections between artists and the public. To ensure the continued participation of as many interested artists as possible, exhibiting artists’ fees are kept moderate. Artists also enjoy many amenities such as opportunities to explore inspiring exhibitions, a special awards banquet, $3,000 in cash prizes, food delivered directly to the booths, and much more. The Festival’s location helps to attract patronage from throughout Wisconsin and northern Illinois; attendance often exceeds 20,000. The event has long been known for its quality as well as its caring, effective staff and volunteers. Just four blocks from Lake Michigan’s shore, this dynamic event is set amidst the gardens surrounding the Arts Center. A welcoming, light-filled, 100,000-square-foot complex, the Arts Center combines a world-class contemporary museum with a lively performing arts venue and renowned residency and commissioning programs.
