Since 2018, The Bascom has offered local and regional artists an opportunity to tell a larger narrative, explore new artistic concepts, and introduce a body of work to members and guests of the visual arts center through their Pop-Up Series.
This year’s members challenge is based on our 2021 annual theme: PLAY! Bascom member artists are asked to submit an original piece of art that they feel best encompasses what the term means to them. The members challenge is our longest running exhibition and this year marks the fifth year with juror selection.
