All ArtsWorcester members are invited to participate in the Twelfth Annual One! Bring us the single piece you want to exhibit most, regardless of medium or theme. To make room for all, wall-hanging artworks- including sculptures that go on the wall- must not exceed 36” in any direction including frame. Artworks that stand on the floor or on a pedestal are limited to 90” in height and 36” at the widest point.

$500 in prizes will be awarded by Claudio Eshun. Claudio Eshun (aka Don Claude) is a photo-based artist and educator at Harvard University. He received his BS in Biological Sciences from Bridgewater State University in 2019 and an MFA degree in Photography from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2022. Born in Accra, Ghana, Eshun lived in Italy until 9 years old, and currently resides in Worcester, MA. Claudio continues expanding his body of work with “Elegant Alien.” His work is currently exhibited at the Worcester Art Museum through May 6, 2024.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Worcester Arts Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
