Artists in the exhibit must be graduates of Eastern’s Visual Arts program, and only original works executed over the past five years will be considered. Commercial designs, animation and motion graphics are welcomed and encouraged.
A panel of jurors will review all entries via digital submissions, select work for the exhibition and award prizes. Artists will be notified of selection by July 25, 2016. Panel members include Thomas Bruhn, emeritus director and curator of the William Benton Museum of Art at the University of Connecticut; Shana Dumont Garr, director of the Kingston Gallery in Boston, MA; and Gregory Garvey, professor of game design and development and chair of the Visual and Performing Arts Department at Quinnipiac University.
