The Wind Challenge Exhibition Series

The Fleisher Art Memorial is excited to announce the call for entries to the 41st season of the Annual Wind Challenge Exhibition Call for Entries. Established in 1978, the Wind Challenge Exhibition is an annual juried competition that is committed to enriching and expanding people’s lives through art. Nine artists will be selected to exhibit in one of three Wind Challenge Exhibitions that will take place between September 2018 through May 2019.

As the Wind Challenge enters its fortieth year, the call for entries is an opportunity to explore and test directions for the renowned program that reflect the evolution of the exhibition and artistic practices. Artists are welcome to, but are no longer required to define their work within a specific medium. Artists and curators are being invited from the Northeast Corridor to participate as jurors, and artists from the Northeast Corridor of the United States are welcome to apply, bringing attention to the local Philadelphia arts scene and local artists. This year’s jurors are curator Elizabeth Grady, Programs Director of A Blade of Grass, and artist Miguel Luciano.

The Wind Challenge has been an esteemed exhibition opportunity to artists in the Philadelphia region, serving as a critical breakthrough for many emerging creative voices. We are excited to continue building the legacy of the Wind Challenge.

The Wind Challenge Exhibition Series is made possible with thanks to generous support from the Wind Foundation and through Fleisher members.
