This year is the South Bend Museum of Art’s 75th anniversary and we want all artists in the area to celebrate with us. We invite artists of all experience levels to participate in Around the Bend, an exhibition that will reflect our diverse and vibrant visual arts community.

This exhibition will take place in SBMA’s Warner Gallery and is open to all artists 18 or over, residing in St. Joseph County and its surrounding counties (Berrien, Cass, Elkhart, LaPorte, Marshall, Starke and St. Joseph). We expect a large number of entries and accepted artworks will be displayed salon style on the gallery walls. Taken as a whole, the exhibition will represent a family portrait of our community and the variety of ways we view ourselves and the world around us.

A public opening on May 6 (5:00–8:00 p.m.) will be a chance to celebrate with other artists and the public, and a page about the exhibition will be created on the SBMA’s website to commemorate this moment in our cultural community.
