About The Show
• Artists must apply for admission and be accepted by the Show's jury.
• All media are eligible for acceptance.
• Artists have the option to submit work for judging in three categories:
• General (any subject, style, inspiration)
• Birds (Joseph H. Dodson, a president of the National Audubon Society, was the longest-term resident of the Bradley House: 34 years. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of his moving in, this year's Art Show will present awards to the best works with a bird theme.)
• Frank Lloyd Wright (any facet of his work)
• Winners of the judging will be announced, and awarded cash prizes, at the opening reception on Friday evening, July 17.

• Best In Show: $300
• People's Choice: $100
In each of the three categories
• First Place: $100
• Second Place: $75
• Honorable Mention: ribbon

• All work entered must be original: no patterns or kits may be used.
• No works which have been awarded prizes in previous shows are eligible for submission for judging in this year's Show.
• Registration fees include submission for judging of three works (one in each category). Artists are free to submit as many more works as they choose, at a fee of $15 per submission.
• Artists planning to enter the Wright category may visit the Bradley House before the show for inspiration.
• At the discretion of Wright In Kankakee, works inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, particularly those representing the Bradley House, may be invited to be displayed in the Bradley House after the Show, offered for sale in the Bradley House Gift Shop, and/or reproduced for national sale.
• Complete rules and details will be furnished to those accepted.
