Submissions are open through November 15, 2019 for the Faculty & Staff Art Exhibit opening in January 2020.
New this year, the exhibition will have a theme: Welcome Home. Submitted works should speak to the artist’s ethos of welcoming (meeting, acceptance, and inclusivity) as well as their interpretation on home (physical structure/place, state of mind, or items that make one feel centered). Additionally, time is being built in between acceptance and the show opening, in order to allow artists to submit abstracts and have time after selection to create their work.
October 15 - November 15, 2019: Online submissions open
