Figures of Speech Annual Exhibition | All artists in the Midwest are invited to enter The Anderson Center for the Arts’ 6th Annual FIGURES OF SPEECH competitive exhibition.

This is your opportunity to turn those classic figures of speech into memorable and interesting works of art. “Birds of a Feather Flock Together” and “Putting Down Roots” are just two examples of phrases that are begging to be turned into a work of art. And who knows? That work of art might just turn into an award for your wit and creativity.
