Orono Intermediate School fifth-grader Gabriella Daly invites you to visit the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s “Foot in the Door 5” Virtual Exhibit, featuring her pencil drawing, “La Pomme.” (We’re so excited about her art, we’ve shared it here!) Gabriella’s art teacher, Ms. Laura Mayo, said, “This is such wonderful news at a challenging time. I am so proud of her!”
Since 1980, “Foot in the Door” has been an open exhibition for Minnesota artists of all ages to present their work at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The exhibition occurs once every 10 years. All submissions must measure at or under 12 inches in height, width, and depth—literally inviting artists to place “a foot” in the museum’s galleries. This year’s virtual exhibition features the work of more than 2,000 Minnesota artists.
