In conjunction with the exhibition The Outwin 2019: American Portraiture Today (on view at the D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts from October 3, 2020 – April 4, 2021), the Springfield Museums invite submissions of original portraits by artists of all ages residing in the Connecticut River Valley and Hartford County, CT. Please only submit portraits that have been created within the last two years. We are especially interested in works that complement the themes explored in The Outwin: American Portraiture Today:  identity, human connection, and responses to the current political and social environment. Only one submission per artist will be accepted.
