Shows to Enter

MOST IMPORTANT for USM current art students, enter the 2012 Student Exhibition. This is a juried exhibition and Greg Moran, a sculptor from Gulfport MS, will be the juror for the fine art section of this show. Participating in shows is really important for students. All graduate programs and employers that I know want to see that you have taken the time and effort to put your work out for the public to interact with. These shows are lines on your resume and the more you have the more competitive you will be in the job market and for graduate positions.

Information and applications for the 2012 Annual Student Show are available in the art office.

Other shows you can enter-

Works on Paper NYC

Going Green at Crossing Art in Brooklyn, NY
