Sun Bowl Art Exhibit




The Call for Artists is now closed; thank you all so much who have entered this year's show.


Sun Bowl Art Exhibit

Since 1949, the Sun Bowl Art Exhibition has been the longest running art exhibit in the Southwest. From its inception as the Sun Carnival Art Exhibit, to now a part of the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl festivities, this exhibition has always been about celebrating the excellence of our community. 

We are excited to share some changes to our 2022 Sun Bowl Art Exhibition! We have brought back member-exclusive prices for entering the show. This year, all of our current members are invited to enter at the discounted price of $40.00. In addition to the discounted entry fee, our members will enjoy a full year of art experiences and great benefits all while providing crucial support for museum operations. To learn more about our membership, click here. 

Additionally we have opened submissions to DSLR Photographers, Film Photographers & Printmakers.
