The Springer Cultural Center offers local and regional artists a professional venue to display their work. Springer hosts six professional art exhibits each year. These art shows are determined by review of applications. Proposals are accepted for solo or collaborative group exhibitions on an ongoing basis.
Artists are responsible for having artwork ready to hang, and for any shipping expenses/insurance while artwork is being transported to or from the Springer Cultural Center and throughout the exhibition. Artists have the opportunity to give a brief talk about their work at a reception provided by the Park District. Please see below for the Professional Art Exhibit Application.
Springer also hosts two amateur art exhibits each year: Town & Country Amateur Art Show and State, Town, & Country Amateur Art Show. Amateur artists can submit entries for the Town & Country Amateur Art Show held in our Winter/Spring season. Winning and other high quality of work entries of the Town & Country Amateur Art Show qualify for the State, Town, & Country Amateur Art Show held in the Fall. Please visit the Town & Country Amateur Art Show page for entry form and more information.
