39th Rock Island Art Guild Fine Arts Exhibition

Since 1955, the Rock Island Art Guild, a volunteer-run organization, has supported the arts in the Quad City region through exhibitions, educational programs and scholarships. This juried guild exhibition is open to artists within a 150-mile radius of the Quad Cities. This year’s juror is Julie Rodrigues Widholm, the director of DePaul Art Museum in Chicago. Prior to her position at DePaul, she was curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, where she organized the first retrospective of Colombian sculptor Doris Salcedo, along with many other exhibitions. In addition to selecting the works for the exhibition at the Figge, Widholm will select the artists who will receive awards.
