Starving Artists' Show

After 50 years of consecutive shows, the 2020 Starving Artists’ Show has been canceled. The groundbreaking of Mount Mary University’s intergenerational housing community is set for mid-summer, and this construction, adjacent to the show grounds, would have significantly limited parking and accessibility.

The show annually features local and national artists who work in pottery, fiber, photography, painting, sculpture, glass and more. A jury of experienced Mount Mary alumnae selects each artist as the show is sponsored by the Mount Mary University Alumnae Association. The entrance fee supports Mount Mary scholarships.

This page showcases a sampling of the 2020 invited artists. Click on the artist's work to visit their website.
