The Delta has grown into one of the most anticipated Arkansas Arts Center exhibitions of the year! Originally presented in 1958 as the Delta Exhibition of Painting and Sculpture, this juried exhibition features innovative and provocative two and three-dimensional works in all media. Each year, more than 900 entries are received from artists who live in or were born in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee or Texas. A guest juror selects works for the exhibition and a Grand Award and two Delta Awards for the top works in the show. The Delta represents the dynamic vision of the artists of the Mississippi Delta region and offers visitors a glimpse into the contemporary art scene.
