Moses Lake Museum & Art Center


The Moses Lake Museum & Art Center is seeking local artists to take part in our next community project focused on creating a sense of connection in the era of social distancing.  We invite you to submit black and white line drawings inspired by the word “GRATITUDE”.  These line drawings will become printed postcards that we encourage the community to decorate, color, and write messages of hope.  An honorarium of $50.00 will be allotted to each selected artist. Please email submissions to with the subject line “Project Postcard Entry”.  Entry submission deadline has been extended to September 25, 2020.

We have been brainstorming best ways to support our local community through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting isolation it has causes to so many of us.  To serve our region’s most vulnerable populations and foster connections through the arts, the Moses Lake Museum & Art Center is pleased to introduce a new social connecting campaign, Project Postcard! The components of which include a community-wide postcard campaign featuring original artwork commissioned from local artists.  These cards will be distributed to eldercare facilities and healthcare workers.  What an opportune time to focus and share what we are grateful for while honoring and encouraging our most vulnerable populations!
