WILMINGTON, DE.- The Delaware Art Museum
invites entries to our 2009 Miniatures exhibition, Masterpieces in Miniature, which will be on view November 7, 2009 January 10, 2010.
Each miniature installation will be inspired by a masterpiece of visual art, according to the entrants own definition of masterpiece. Entrants are encouraged, though not required, to select a work from the Museums own collections. Rather than exact three-dimensional reproductions, the miniatures may be creative interpretations of the original.
Please note that Masterpieces in Miniature is not an exhibition of miniature paintings or singular miniature items. Entries must be three-dimensional room-box or diorama-type settings. The miniatures must conform to specifications regarding size, scale, and other requirements as outlined in the Masterpieces in Miniature Rules & Information sheet.
Entrants must complete and return an Entry Form to the Delaware Art Museum no later than July 8, 2009. The Entry Form and Rules & Information can be found on the Museums website at http://www.delart.org/exhibitions/miniatures/index.html
. To avoid duplicates, entrants must indicate their choice of (1) Artist and (2) Work of Art at this time. Entries will be considered in the order they are received.
Unless they submitted entries in 2008, entrants must also submit sample photographs of their previous miniature work to be reviewed by the 2009 Miniatures Exhibition Committee. The Committee will contact applicants with their acceptance status no later than August 1, 2009. Museum visitors will be able to vote for their favorite miniature, and in December, the first-, second-, and third place winners will be announced.
