More than 2,000 works by Minnesota artists in Mia’s virtual ‘Foot in the Door 5’

31October 2020

Imagine if getting your work in the Minneapolis Institute of Art was easy as living in Minnesota and submitting any art that fits in a one-cubic-foot parameter. Well, it was for Mia’s “Foot in the Door 5” exhibit.

Mia’s “Foot in the Door 5” exhibit will be virtual this year and feature more than 2,000 works of art from Minnesota artists ages 2 all the way up to 93, starting Nov. 1 and open until Jan. 10, 2021. There will also be a virtual family day for the exhibit Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The “Foot in the Door” exhibit is held every 10 years at Mia and is an open exhibition for all Minnesota artists. Submissions for pieces opened in September and ran until the end of the month. The exhibition includes digital prints, paintings, photographs, sculptures, ceramics and more.

The four-decade-long tradition traces back to the first “Foot in the Door” exhibit in 1980 which featured more than 700 artists. The event was the product of a curatorial program at Mia, the Minneapolis Artist Exhibition Program (MAEP),  focused on exhibiting and supporting Minnesotan artists. Early on the panel decided to open the door to all Minnesota artists, according to a Mia news release.

The arts community event has featured more and more artists every return. “Foot in the Door’s” fourth exhibit officially became Minnesota’s largest art exhibition with their nearly 5,000 art works.
