The Fine Arts Department of the Minnesota State Fair presents an annual art exhibition that is the result of a juried competition. Participation is open to any living artist who is a resident of Minnesota, subject to the conditions and rules outlined in the entry form. All entries are judged, and only the works accepted by the jurors are displayed in the Fine Arts Center during the Fair. This year artwork was received from 1324 artists; 353 pieces were accepted and are presented as the 2003 Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts Exhibition.
Seven individuals judged this year's fine art exhibition. They selected the entries to be included in the exhibition, and designated the works to receive awards. Peter Latner juried photography.
