Art must be created between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM in the Center for Student Involvement's conference rooms during November 3rd – November 7th only.

During the gallery opening reception votes will be tallied for the "Best Painting" and prizes will be given out to our top three artists! Paintings will be evaluated based on these criteria:
1. Educational Value
Does the artwork inform and educate the community?
Does the artwork bring insight to cultural, historical, or social issues?

2. Quality
Does the artwork demonstrate excellence in originality, creativity, and imagination?

3. Audience Appeal
Is the artwork appealing and relevant to our community?
