The 78th Art Annual exhibit is an all-media, juried exhibition of current artworks produced by artists living in the counties of Northeastern Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  

This juried art exhibition began in 1942 during the height of World War II. For over three-quarters of a century, many of this region’s most celebrated and talented artists have exhibited their work as part of this Green Bay tradition. This exhibition exhibits the importance and power of visual languages that can be interpreted and reinterpreted. For everything that needs to be said there is a language, and the languages of these artists are eclectic and relevant for the times in which we live. The artists have spoken from their own unique voices utilizing various mediums, subject matter, and cultures.

The juror for the

78th Art Annual

is Emily Schlemowitz. Emily is the Senior Curator at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts (WMQFA), where she curates exhibitions that feature both the historic and contemporary landscape of textiles. Prior to WMQFA, Emily held curatorial and editorial positions at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Robert Motherwell Catalogue Raisonné. She has a BA in Studio Art from Smith College and MA in Art History from CUNY, Hunter College.
