The University of Olivet visual arts program is proud to present the fifth annual Regional High School Student Art Exhibition. The goal of the exhibition is to support and celebrate area students’ creative work and promote the arts in the greater The University of Olivet community.
High school juniors and seniors from across the region may enter 2D, 3D, ceramics and graphic design artwork to compete for The University of Olivet talent-based scholarships up to $3,000. Submissions will be accepted from Tuesday, Nov. 2 through Monday, Dec. 6 at the Office of Admission located in Dole Hall, 320 S. Main St., Olivet. Students may submit up to four works, and there is no cost to enter. Parents and teachers are also welcome to submit artwork on behalf of students. Artwork should be submitted with the students’ name, grade, high school, contact information and the medium used to create work.
A reception and awards ceremony will be held on Friday, Dec. 10, 6-8 p.m., and the works will be on display Dec. 9-17. Both the exhibition display and the awards ceremony will be held in the Kresge Foundation Art Gallery inside of the Riethmiller Blackman Art Building at The University of Olivet.
“As an instructor at The University of Olivet, I am excited to facilitate this outreach into our region and to show the creativity of many students through their artwork,” said Don VanAuken, professor of art and Visual Arts Talent Program director. “We want to begin a dialogue with students, educators and parents on how the Arts Department at The University of Olivet can assist in the artistic and cultural vitality of our region and to show how the visual arts can be a viable career choice for students.”
