Originally created in 1980, Art on City Walls is an ongoing exhibit that features artwork from local artists to exhibit their work at the Art Center.
Media ranging from photography and paintings to murals and collages are considered for exhibition. Up to 40 pieces of art may be shown, depending on size. Exhibitions change every six weeks and are open Monday through Friday during regular Art Center hours.
Two-dimensional works must be framed and ready to hang by cable and hook provided by the Art Center. Three-dimensional works must be less than 18-inches high, by 24-inches wide and 8-inches deep. Artwork is hung in the hallways and common areas. Additional exhibition space is available at the Senior Center.
All exhibits are free and open to the public.
To learn more about exhibiting, contact the Art Center at 952-949-8304.
Exhibit Your Work
Applications are taken until Dec. 1 for the next year's exhibition calendar.
Exhibitors are chosen based on merit; preference is given to Eden Prairie artists.
If you do not have enough pieces for your own exhibit, we can schedule your show with one or more other artists. Please note this on your application. If you would like to schedule an open house during your exhibition you will be able to do so Monday–Thursday evenings at any time during your exhibition.
