Student Affairs invites all current students, faculty and staff at WIU-QC to submit images of art, photos, 3D Objects and designs (technical drawings from the Engineering Department are encouraged) for possible display in the QC Complex Building C, Atrium for the Second Annual Campus Art Show.

They may also be 3D if the object is able to stand on its own on top of a table. We encourage that works be for sale, but it is not a requirement for inclusion. A limited number of works will be accepted.

The theme of this exhibition is diversity. April is National Diversity month so we are asking, what makes you, you? As members of WIU, we all come from different backgrounds. We have our own passions and see a very specific reality. Along with your piece, please provide an artist statement about how this piece represents your diversity. The deadline for entry is Friday March 3rd, 2017. Applicants will be notified by Friday March 10th, 2017 if their works have been accepted.

Drop off of works will be Thursday March 23rd, 2017, 9am-4:30pm and Friday March 24th, 9am-4:30pm at the reception desk in the Atrium of Building C. The show will last from Monday April 3rd - Sunday April 30th

An Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, April 20th starting at 5pm in the QC Complex Building C, Atrium.
