MSSA 129th Annual Training Conference & Expo - Call for Artists

Submissions are now closed.


Submit Your Artwork


MSSA is excited to provide an opportunity for artists to showcase their talents in support of our 129th Annual Training Conference & Expo in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This year's conference theme is Renew, Reconnect, Reimagine.

Our goal is to highlight an artist that has been positively impacted by the Health and Human Services system. Our target audience includes:

  • Artists touched by the health and human service system.

  • Artists whose work aligns with MSSA’s core beliefs and values—of social responsibility, equity, and inclusion.

  • Artists that are local to Minnesota and neighboring states.

The selected artist will receive a stipend of $750 for the use of their artwork in promotional materials for the 2021 Annual Conference. Artists may also receive a free exhibit opportunity during our conference, complimentary registration for our conference, and a 1-year membership to MSSA. The image will be published on MSSA’s website, in emails, and on printed materials (reaching thousands) and will be the visual centerpiece for the conference.  


Please read the Call for Artists Overview  for full details.
