Call for art entries

Submitted works of art are now on display in Green Hall and Skok Hall! Be sure to check out our brochure to see where you can view the different pieces. There are several display locations. 

To recognize and celebrate the diverse perspectives of forestry and forest resources, the Department of Forest Resources is inviting alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends to express, through art, perspectives of and representation in forestry and forest resources. Submissions will be reviewed and put on view in the Department of Forest Resources with a reception in the spring. A People’s Choice award of $100 will also be shared with the winning artist.

Submissions may be in any medium including, but not limited to, paint, drawing, photography, video, digital, sculpture, charcoal, fiber arts and mixed-media. Work should be framed and ready to hang (100 pound limit) and 3-D art should be easily movable (40 pounds or less) or on wheels. By submission, the artist agrees to display art in departmental space for 6 months. Please submit a signed loan agreement with each piece of art.
*Please note: Our 2019 submission period had CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who has contributed their works of art!
