The Art Department holds two student exhibitions each year, but there are some major differences between them. Our upcoming Nonword & Upward show is open to all Wheaton undergraduates and is a juried exhibition with cash prizes. This years juror is Cherith Lundin, a ’98 Wheaton Alum who went on to receive her MFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Cherith currently directs the art gallery at Trinity Christian College and her husband is an assistant professor of History here at Wheaton.
This year’s prizes are:
Best of Show: $150
1st Place: $100
2nd Place: $75
Honorable Mention: $50
Student Choice Award: $50
Additionally, Blick Art Materials will be sponsoring this exhibit and is generously providing gift certificates to our winners.
We look forward to seeing submissions and sharing selected works and our winners with you once the exhibit is open!
Submissions are due by end of the day on Monday, November 28th and selections will be made by our juror thereafter. The show will be hung on the 30th and open from Dec 1 to Jan 19. Please contact the Art Department for more information regarding submission procedures if you are a Wheaton undergraduate student looking for more information.
