Student Art on Campus: Residence Hall Collection 2020 Prospectus, Submissions due 4/8/2020 in SlideRoom


Art in the Residence Halls is a component of the Art on Campus initiative at DePaul University, and it is a partnership to showcase student artwork on campus between DePaul University's Department of Housing, Dining and Student Centers and The Art School in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. This initiative is designed to build a connection for students with residential spaces and a variety of different types of student artworks, with a goal of adding more student art works to this collection each year.

Awards and Prizes

The student art works that are selected will be on display in a campus residence hall. Up to five student artworks will be selected and awarded a purchase prize of $500.00 each. The selected works will be professionally framed, installed, and included in the Department of Housing, Dining and Student Centers Student Art Collection, which they will then own. This spring 2020 collection will be the fifth installation of acquiring student artworks for the Student Art on Campus Residence Hall Collection. The Department of Housing, Dining and Student Centers sponsors this student event and will also host a reception for all students who submitted works in honor of the selected students (friends and family are welcome) in the spring, tentatively scheduled for May 21, 2020, 2:00-3:00PM (Save the Date).
