The Butler’s Annual National Juried Show

Annual National Juried Show: 72nd National Midyear Exhibition Now through Aug 24, 2008

This annual juried exhibition is open to artists over 18 years of age who reside within the United States and/or its territories. One hundred works were selected by this year's juror, New York painter Don Eddy.

I'm hoping to see this show before the closing date. I had no luck finding a photo from the exhibition so I’ve attached an image featured in the permanent collection, “Green Pom-Pom” by Walk Kuhn.

About the Butler Institute of American Art
The Butler collection includes works from four centuries, and is assembled in Butler galleries in chronological order according to the history of America.

The Butler Institute is the first museum of American art. The original structure, dedicated in 1919, is a McKim, Mead and White architectural masterpiece listed on the National Register of Historic places. The museum's mission is to preserve and collect works of art in all media created by citizens of our country. The Institute's holdings now exceed 20,000 individual works, and the Butler is known worldwide as "America's Museum."

The Beecher Center, housed in the south wing of the Butler's Youngstown location, is the first museum addition dedicated solely to new media and electronic art. The facility regularly displays works of art that utilize - computers, holography, lasers and other digital media. The Beecher Center houses the Zona Auditorium, a digital media theater designed for performance art and high-definition film presentations.
