Art in Isolation

In the Age of “social distancing” the North Dakota Museum of Art invites the residents of the Northern Plains and beyond to participate in an experimental exhibition entitled Art in Isolation

This call is open to everyone regardless of age or level of art making. The subject can be how you are dealing/not dealing with the current social, political and health situation facing the world today.


The NDMOA is asking for images of your work sent via email to


The Museum will print your work on copy paper (8.5x11/black and white) and install them in one of the Museum’s galleries. The goal is to cover a gallery wall making one large work made up of individual submissions.

Be Creative! Just because we are all stuck inside, doesn’t mean our art has to be! Isolation cannot keep art from connecting us. All participants will be recognized in both print and on online.


All images of your work are welcome - pdf or jpg of Photographs, Digital Art, Painting, Drawings, Printmaking, Sculpture, Installation, Poems, Writings, Music, Performance, any form of creative expression is encouraged.
