COVID hit the Momentum program hard. But with the support of the community, we were able to pivot our services and continue to provide hope and resilience through art. Through the magic of technology and a lot of hard work, we presented the 2020 annual exhibition virtually. Please enjoy a video walk-through of the gallery show, a digital program copy, and a video from our Presenting Sponsor, Heartland Millwrights and guest juror Rachel Buse.
Each year Momentum chooses a new juror to select the works included in our exhibition.
- 2020 Guest Juror Rachel Buse, Co-Owner of Portrait Studio and Manager of Art Beacon.
- 2019 Guest Juror Chaden Halfhill, Founder & CEO of Silent Rivers
- 2018 Guest Juror was Susan Watts, Owner at Olson-Larsen Galleries.
