The “Art of the State®: Pennsylvania 2012” is the annual, juried art exhibition, co-sponsored for an amazing 45 consecutive years by The Greater Harrisburg Arts Council and The State Museum of Pennsylvania, PHMC. This is an impressive collaboration begun in 1964 - few non-profits have continued a partnership for so many years. Neither The State Museum nor the GHAC could accomplish this annual event without the other.

It is recognized as the official, statewide, juried competition for Pennsylvania artists. The finest current works of established and emerging artists are selected by a distinguished panel of jurors. Most pieces are available for purchase.

The competition, open only to Pennsylvanians, includes five categories: Works on Paper, Painting, Sculpture, Craft and Photography. In 2012, jurors selected 130 pieces from 1,834 entries. The Greater Harrisburg Arts Council presents a total $5,000 in cash prizes with additional prizes awarded including the Rose Roy Memorial Award Honoring Volunteerism, the William D. Davis Memorial Award for Drawing and The State Museum of Pennsylvania Purchase Award.

The Greater Harrisburg Arts Council sincerely appreciates the dedication and expertise of the staff of The State Museum of Pennsylvania and the volunteers, who, through their year-round efforts, make this exhibition a prestigious statewide showcase for the talent, creativity and diversity of Pennsylvania artists.

The “Art of the State®: Pennsylvania 2012” exhibition runs from Sunday, June 17, 2012 to Sunday, September 9, 2012. For more information about The State Museum of Pennsylvania, visit www.statemuseumpa.org.
