DEADLINE: September 13, 2019

The Professional Dimensions Sacagawea Artist selection is open to any Wisconsin-based woman artist who consistently shows skill and originality in a medium such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, or fiber.  The selected artist will receive a monetary honorarium of $6,000 for the creation of three art pieces, recognition as an honored guest at the 2020 Sacagawea Awards dinner and a one year’s honorary membership to Professional Dimensions.

Two of the art awards will be presented to each of the honored recipients at the Sacagawea Awards dinner on March 12, 2020 attended by more than 500 Milwaukee area business leaders at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  The selected artist will create one additional piece for the Professional Dimensions art collection.  If you wish to view the permanent Professional Dimensions Art Collection (consisting of 38 pieces in various mediums), it is on display at Alverno College in the technology building rotunda.


In order to be considered for selection as the Professional Dimensions Sacagawea Artist who will create these unique awards, please submit the items listed below to Patti Keating Kahn at msbiz@att.net.

  • Artist Resume (detailing your education, awards and background in the arts);
  • Relationship of Artist with Professional Dimensions, if any;
  • Statement regarding how Artist’s work honors the spirit of Sacagawea;
  • Selection of Artist’s visuals (please include 10-15 images if possible):

The committee will be using a computer with a standard business digital projector to project images on a screen.  Please note the following requirements:

  • Format:  JPEG  file.
  • Image size/resolution:  We ask that you size your JPEG so the longest dimension is 700 pixels.  This will ensure that the committee will see the image as you intend it to be shown.  (Our screen resolution will be 1024x768 pixels.)
  • Color Space:  We will use sRGB (standardized Red Green Blue) for viewing images (the default color space for viewing on a monitor and projector).
  • Color temperature/white balance/gamma:  We will set our monitor and projector to 6500 Kelvin for viewing, with a gamma of 2.2.

To be eligible for the award, all materials must be received by Patty Keating Kahn, Chair, Sacagawea Artist Selection Committee by 11:59 PM (CST) on Friday, September 13, 2019. Any submissions received after that time will not be considered.
