Manifest in Cincinnati, OH seeks entries for an upcoming art exhibition, July 12 - August 9, 2019. Open to current graduate students and MFA/MA degree recipients since January 2018.

Manifest's goal, therefore, is to select works that set the standard of quality that the artist is expected to maintain throughout his or her professional career and justify the degree of Master. The full-color hardcover Manifest Exhibition Annual publication, a 'yearbook' for the season, will serve as a visual documentation of these artists' own benchmarks for years to come. Up to three of Manifest's exhibit spaces will be devoted to the exhibition. Accepted work is eligible for the annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize of $2500. $25 entry fee. Deadline: May 3, 2019.
