Call For Art Makers-Friday March 22nd
Want to make art all day to demonstrate the importance of the artistic process? And then be featured in an exhibition? Great!
Visit libguides.usd.edu/make-art to register by March 20.
About the 2-Part Art Experience:
A visual art-making event open to student, faculty and community art makers, in which artists are given 7 hours to make an artwork, from start to finish, followed later by an exhibition showcasing the products of this event. The purpose of the event is to challenge artists to work within a tight deadline and to expose library visitors to the process of creativity. Event participants and visitors will get the opportunity to engage in conversations about the processes of creativity and visual art making, current cultural topics and other stimulating discussions. Event spectators and exhibition visitors will develop a deeper understanding of Libraries’ commitment to diverse academic and artistic pursuits, as well as facilitating execution of cultural community events. In order to broaden patrons’ understanding and appreciation of the University Libraries’ mission, this exhibit would strengthen participants’ knowledge of Libraries’ support of their intellectual research.
