Besser Museum Holds Juried Art Exhibit

The Besser Museum has a new artist that will be displaying their talented artwork in 2017.

Yesterday, the museum hosted their juried art exhibit where Michigan artist submitted up to 3 pieces of artwork for judging.

Executive Director, Chris Witulski said it’s important to keep the arts alive and continue this kind of exhibit each year.

“Art is really one of the strong foundation disciplines of the museum. The juried art allows local artist to have a platform to show their work. I consider myself an art appreciator not an artist and i really admire the courage that they have to express themselves publicly in such a vulnerable way, and allow others to see how they see the world, communicating through their art,” Witulski said.

There were over 140 pieces submitted this year. 70 pieces were chosen out of those submissions.

The exhibit will be on display at the museum until December 31st. First place winner went to Rose Wojda.

Her artwork will be on display for the entire year starting in 2017.
