Biggs Picture Juried Landscape Competition

The Biggs Museum of American Art is proud to again host the Biggs Picture, a juried landscape competition. This exhibition will present art works from all media; such as, painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, craft, and video; of competition winners that most successfully interpret the theme of “Landscape”. Depending on size, the exhibition will display between 40 and 60 works. Each work must fit within at least one of these sub-themes:

Perceived Landscape: interpretations of actual spaces at particular times.

Imagined Landscapes: interpretations of spaces from the past, memory, make-believe, and/or the future.

Landscapes of the Mind: interpreting psychological states of being through creations of space.


Jason Rosenfeld, Chair and Professor of Art History at Marymount Manhattan College and Co-Curator of “River Crossings” at the historic homes of landscapists Thomas Cole and Frederic Edwin Church


One work will be selected by the jurors as Best-in-Show for a $1,500 purchase prize to be added to the Biggs Museum collection.


The competition is open to all artists, both amateur and professional of Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
