First Group of Artwork Chosen!
The following pieces have been chosen for display in a large format. Students whose work was chosen will need to get the best possible file to Michelle Moore of Graphic Communications for printing. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upcoming Display Will Also Feature Other Pieces
Coming Soon! We envision also creating a display that would also rotate smaller pieces. This hanging space will require some time to create, but we wanted to let you know that more pieces would be there…
Submit Your Artwork
We would love to showcase the original art of our students here in the Information Technology building. We’re planning to create some hanging spaces on the walls, and we have a glass cabinet for display of some three-dimensional pieces also.
Any student attending an Information Technology program is eligible to submit their original artwork for our committee to consider for the new displays. If you’re interested in submitting your work for display, please read the Q & A below to find out what you need to do!
What Kind of File Should I Submit for Consideration?
If you would like to submit a piece for our committee to consider for display, please take a photograph of your art if it is not in a digital file format already — you’ll be uploading this image file using the form at the bottom of this web page so that we can see what your art looks like.
If your piece is a video or website or anything normally seen on a computer screen, you can submit a screenshot of it — we only have the means to display images on the walls at this time — no motion graphics or videos. (Maybe in the future, we will be able to display those kinds of designs on a kiosk in the lobby!)
The file type should be one of the following:
Use graphics software to reduce the file size of this image file to less than 350KB. We don’t want a high resolution file until we are preparing it for display — this saves space on our website as we receive your submissions. We will need a much better file for printing later if your work is chosen.
How Many Pieces Can I Submit?
For the October submissions, we will only consider your first 5 entries. When we are ready for more student artwork, we will start a new Call for Artwork and you can submit another 5 new pieces at that time.
What Subject Matter Can the Artwork Contain?
We are looking for all kinds of styles, moods, themes, types, etc. Keep in mind that we are displaying the work in a public school (not a college art school or privately held gallery), so the subject matter must be appropriate for this setting, and we’re looking for pieces that will inspire visitors who come to our building. Nothing controversial or disturbing will be considered.
We want to show off to the world how creative our students are, so we want to showcase the very best quality artwork that you’ve created or will create!
Note: Your artwork should not be a copy of someone else’s artwork or photograph. For example, it is not considered original if you create a painting based on a photograph taken by someone else. It should be completely original — by you. Artists should adhere to copyright law — for more on this, see the ARS website.
Does the Work Need to Be Printed Already? Framed?
If the work needs to be printed, the Graphic Communications department has a large-format printer that we may use to print works that are chosen. Paintings on canvas may be hung with or without a frame. If you have a frame on the piece already, please take your submission picture with the piece in the frame so that we can determine if we want to hang it with or without your frame.
The location where we want to place the piece may determine what print format we will use and how the piece will be framed, if at all.
Will I Get My Work Back?
When it is time for your piece to be taken down, you’ll receive it back. This will be the case for original artwork on canvas or any piece that you provided to us that was already ready to display. If we print a version of it from your file, however, we might keep it hanging on permanent display if we have your permission. Some pieces might be rotated more often than others, depending on where and how they are hung.
If your work is chosen for display, you’ll need to sign a waiver giving us certain permissions, etc. so that we can display the work.
Deadline for Submission
Please use the form below to submit your art for consideration for this first Call for Student Artwork. A committee of Francis Tuttle employees from our building will review the submissions and begin choosing the first pieces for display on October 16th. We will contact you if we are considering your work for display so that we can discuss printing, etc.
We will publish a new Call for Student Artwork in a few months, so if you can’t get anything ready by this first deadline, get busy creating something awesome and check back here!
