Helen Farnsworth Mears Art Contest

Connect Downtown Oshkosh


The COVID pandemic has changed the look of this year’s historic art contest dedicated to the memory of Oshkosh sculptor, Helen Farnsworth Mears (1871-1916). Teachers and students faced challenges while art classes were taught virtually in some Oshkosh schools. All artwork, submitted digitally, included 2-dimension (drawing and painting) and 3-dimension (sculpture) and a new, third category, Digital Art. The traditional exhibit in the Oshkosh Public Library, Lower Level, will be replaced with a virtual exhibit on a large-screen TV. This continual-running show is open to the public from March 31-April 18 during library hours.
