Foot-In-The-Door Show at the Minneapolis Institute of Art

A new decade means it's time again for the Foot-In-The-Door Show and the MIA.

Free Exhibition

Opening reception: Thursday, February 18, 2010

Foot in the Door 4 is an open exhibition for all Minnesota artists, which takes place every ten years at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Since 1980, Foot in the Door has celebrated the diversity and enthusiasm of Minnesota's visual arts community.

The one restriction about exhibiting is that your work, of any type, must fit in a 12 inch by 12 inch box. You could be Alec Soth or Joe Schmoe and if the art fits in the box, it's in the show.

I was in Foot In The Door 3 in 2000, so now I will be able to say, "Yes, I've had a couple of works displayed in the largest art museum in Minnesota."

One cool thing about FITD is that they photograph your work and your art becomes part of the permanent MIA website. Even today, if you search my name on the MIA website, you will see my "Pilgrim" photograph that I had in the exhibit in 2000. This year, look for my Exploding Crab.

(Okay, I dropped off today right as they opened. Actually, 20 minutes before they opened, but they were taking submissions anyway. It took me 35 minutes to get through the line to submit. People who dropped off Friday in the middle of the day may have had to wait more than 2 hours. suckas!)

By the way, good luck trying to find my image in this unorganized chaotic mess of an exhibit.

The image directory says I am located in the grid at 000-00, which as you might guess, does not exist. A friend's work was also not where it was labeled to be.

There is lots of good and interesting art to see in this exhibit, but as far as I'm concerned, the MIA can bite me.

About Me

My photo
Minneapolis, MN, United States
Photographer/Artist based in Mpls, MN. I have a studio in the NE Arts District--Studio #274 at the Northrup King Bldg, 1500 Jackson St NE. I photograph elements of nature to explore color, shape, and composition. My goal is to capture images of the nature around me in a way that explodes (or seaps) with beauty. If that nature is in a vacant city lot, all the better. (All images Copyrighted. Use permitted with permission).
