Here's the show that got us started in the lady's hat department at Minas Department Store in downtown Hammond in 1936. The Salon Show became an annual event beginning in 1944. Since 1989, when the first Salon Show was presented in our new home at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts, Munster, the Helen V. Surovek Memorial Award has been the exhibit's top prize. Every year, South Shore Arts awards over $10,000 in prizes to competing artists. Our juror this year is Gregg Hertzlieb, curator/director of the Brauer Museum of Art at Valparaiso University.
Join us for the Awards Reception on Sunday, September 17, from 1-3pm. Awards will be presented promptly at 1:30pm.
