The Clough Art Crawl

Celebrating the Artwork of Georgia Tech Students

The Clough Commons Art Crawl is back with a new format and theme!  The annual Art Crawl, which serves as a unique opportunity for Georgia Tech students to showcase their artistic talents, will now run each semester, with exhibition openings in the Spring and Fall.  Each semester the Art Crawl will have a new theme to inspire student artists and to shape the exhibition.

The theme for the Spring 2019 exhibition is Art Meets Science.  Artists should submit works of art that are inspired by the connection between artistic expression and the world of science. In conjunction with the College of Sciences and the year-long celebration of the International Year of the Periodic Table of the Chemical Elements, a special section of the Spring exhibition will be devoted to art inspired by the periodic table or a chemical element.

The Art Crawl will begin accepting submissions of art from undergraduate and graduate students on January 4, 2019 in the following categories:

Visual Art – drawings, paintings, and photography
Digital Art – code-based art, animation, film, and graphic design
Structural Art – sculpture, architecture, crafts, and textiles
Literary Works – poetry/prose, comics, and short stories
Performance Art – dance, live instrumentation, vocal performance, music production, and theater

The Art Crawl will award prizes to winners in each category, and the College of Sciences will also present awards for the top submissions in the special section on the periodic table.

All currently enrolled Georgia Tech undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to submit work. Each student may submit one piece. Visual artwork can be provided in either digital or physical format. Submissions will be reviewed by a jury of students, faculty, and staff. If your piece is approved, it will be included in the show and on display in the Clough Commons until the end of Spring semester.  Some pieces will remain on display for a period of time after Spring semester at Clough Commons, the Ferst Center for the Arts, or other campus locations.

The Clough Art Crawl is coordinated by the Georgia Tech Office of the Arts in partnership with the Georgia Tech Library. For more information please contact info@arts.gatech.edu.
