Sap is running: Life is Stirring

MNIBA is launching its first quarterly call for artistic works that coincide with specific themes that are central to our local Indigenous lifeways. MNIBA wishes to honor the seasons and our ways of life as Indigenous creators through art.

Our first catalogue will feature works under the theme, “Sap is Running; Life is Beginning to Stir” for spring March 2021. 

We are inviting Mni Sota based Native artists of all disciplines and Native Nations to submit works along with personal explanatories. The public will pick their “Fan Favorite” and three other artists will be recognized too. 

Cost: $20 fee for each artistic entry. (Limit 5 per artist).  This will cover the cost of social media promotion, professional photography, prizes, and the continued work of this organization in support of this project. 

The Fan Favorite of each season’s publication prize will be given the cover of the promotional catalog that will be online and in paper copy, to boost artist exposure, sales, and social media presence.

Deadline for submissions:  February 15, 2021
