CALLING ALL 8TH–12TH GRADE ARTISTS IN LEE COUNTY, ALABAMA
Submit your work to be a part of a juried exhibition hosted by Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, Auburn University (JCSM) and the JCSM Teen Council.
The exhibition is open to all originally created artwork. The title of the exhibition is soap*box, inviting you to submit works conveying some sort of personal stance. The panel of jurors for soap*box will include Gary Wagoner, an Auburn University art professor, Nate Coker, a local artist, June Corley, a well-known regional artist, and Jiha Moon, the contemporary artist featured in JCSM’s primary exhibition opening in January.
We will begin the submission process for the juried exhibition aspect of the program starting on September 1st and will continue accepting artwork through December 15th.
The jurying process will take place over winter break with the announcement of winners and an evening event on January 20th. Ten winning artists will be selected to win prizes and have their work and artists’ statements displayed at JCSM on the night of the event. Winning artwork will also be featured in a digital exhibition housed on the JCSM website.
The event, hosted by the JCSM Teen Council with support from the museum’s education staff, will include refreshments and the announcement of winners (specific place rankings) and prizes. Highlights of the event will also include: hands-on activity stations, music, a photo booth, and raffle prizes.
