Call for Artists! 

People’s Choice Art 

Competition with Cash Prizes 

The Prairie Renaissance Cultural Alliance is looking for artists to compete in their Metal Arts Festival metal art competition. This year we are encouraging all artists to showcase their art at our Competition and Live Auction. All mediums are welcome if there is some metal component to the artwork. They are looking for sculpture, welded artworks, mixed media, jewelry, 3-dimensional art, fiber art, etc. All sizes accepted. Be as creative and inventive as you wish – push the boundaries of metal art!  

How to participate in the Metal Arts Festival  

1. Create an artwork to enter into the Metal Arts Contest. All works of art entered in the Metal Art Contest are eligible for $600 in cash prizes, to be awarded by audience voting on the day of the festival. All works of art in the contest will be considered donations to the PRCA and will be auctioned off in a live auction following the contest. Proceeds will benefit the PRCA. Every artist who donates an artwork to the PRCA Metal Art Contest also gets a FREE vendor space to display and /or sell their artwork. 

2. Donated art may be any size, and may be mixed media, but should include some metal materials. (Used and “found” materials are okay.)  

3. Register your artwork by August 23 , by e-mailing Please include your name, address, phone number, and the approximate dimensions of your piece or pieces of artwork (to help us plan for display), and the value of your artwork. Attach a photo of your piece(s) to your email. If you submit more than one artwork for the competition, please indicate which one is your DONATED piece for the live auction.  

5. Eastside Park in Morris, MN on Saturday, Sept. 7th from 9-11 a.m.  

6. Any entries other than your donated art piece will be on display for the competition and may be offered for sale if you wish. The proceeds of those additional works would be given to the artist.
