CALL FOR ENTRIES: “Local Artists Go Miniature”

Local Artists Go Miniature at The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures

Calling All Local Artists!

Fine-scale miniature artists in the collection of The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures create astoundingly small objects inspired by everything from Louis XV’s study at Versailles to an Art Deco bathroom to a tray of chips, salsa, and guacamole. These small versions of full-scale objects invite the viewer to look closer at the world around them in exciting new ways.

What have you always wanted to make in miniature?

We invite artists within a 60-mile radius of Kansas City to submit up to three small visual artworks to be considered for a juried exhibition in the Museum’s newest gallery.

  • 2D and 3D submissions of any media and concept are welcomed, but objects can be no larger than 12x12x12”.
  • Artworks can be realistic, abstract, and/or imagined subjects and do not have to be inspired by an existing, full-scale object.
  • All artists selected will receive a $575 honorarium and must agree to have their work on view at the Museum for the duration of the exhibition, October 25, 2024 – June 9, 2025.
  • Artists in the exhibition will also be invited to participate in creating interpretation elements as well as leading makers workshops for the community.
