We are using a new entry platform, that uses different terminology than you might be used to seeing. In ArtCall:

  • You will be asked to pay for the number of artworks you’ll be uploading in advance. You can add more later.

  • The word “application” means artwork, so one application is one work of art.

  • “Attachments” means images of the artwork, you can upload up to 2 images. You do not need to pay extra for attachments.

For first time users, we recommend the following resources:

  • The video tutorial linked on the call for entry page.
  • Our blog post that walks you through the entry process step-by-step.
  • Our FAQ section.

Introducing The Changing Americas  

From the oceans surrounding it to the mountains and rivers dividing it, this land is home to some of the world’s most powerful and striking landscapes. Whether urban, rural, or suburban, landscapes are always changing – sometimes the changes are welcome, and others can lead to unintended consequences. Landscapes are affected by development, restoration, natural disasters, the warming climate, and other natural and anthropogenic factors. Show us the landscapes of your life. Open to all media following exhibition guidelines, MFA will showcase any original 2D or 3D work depicting a landscape from the Americas (North America, Hawaii, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America). Works selected by the juror will be exhibited in MFA’s Circle Gallery from August 28 – September 21, 2024.
