The University of Utah President’s Gallery Committee is pleased to announce its second art exhibition to feature work by the entire U community including current students, faculty and staff. Visual artists working in all media, from any department, are invited to submit up to three examples of their work to be juried by the members of the President’s Gallery Committee for inclusion in the exhibition. The President’s Gallery: “A Sense of Place” exhibition will be held at the Park Building Feb. 25-April 22, 2016.

Artists are encouraged to submit work that reflects the title of the exhibition – “A Sense of Place” – in the broadest sense. Accepted submissions will present diverse observations of the land, the people, the communities and campus life in Utah and at the U.

The exhibition will be curated and installed by campus professionals on the third floor of the Park Building and will be insured by the university from the time of delivery to the time of pickup.

ELIGIBILITY
Artists submitting their work for consideration must be a current full-time or part-time member of the student body, faculty or staff of the U.

REQUIREMENTS
The artwork, should it be selected, must be available for exhibit from Feb. 25-April 22, 2016. Work may not be removed from the exhibition during that time. Work selected for the exhibition must be delivered as directed, professionally framed or otherwise prepared for exhibition and ready to install.

All visual media, including sculpture, are eligible with the understanding that there may be space limitations for 3-D work and technical limitations for film, video and other digital media.
