We invite you to share in this rich tradition of the Swope Art Museum and sponsor a Juror’s Award or Purchase Award for the 79th Annual Wabash Valley Juried Exhibition. Your award provides much needed support to regional artists and enhances the reputation of the show.

As a Juror’s Award sponsor, your name or another name you choose will be fully noted on the exhibit label, in the exhibition catalog, and on any other press material. The artworks receiving awards are chosen at the Juror’s discretion. Juror’s Award sponsorships are fully tax deductible.

A fantastic way to build a personal or corporate collection. Individuals and businesses may choose to participate by pledging Purchase Awards. A non-refundable minimum deposit of $100 is required. Purchase Award Selection will be by appointment on the following days: October 23-27. The $100 minimum deposit will be applied toward the total amount of the final sale with 10% of the final purchase cost being tax deductible. If the purchaser should decide not to buy a work, the $100 non-refundable deposit will be converted into a Juror’s Award of Recognition and will be fully tax deductible.

If you would like to sponsor an award or have questions, please contact Sara McCarthy at mccarthy@swope.org or (812)238-1676
