Call for Submissions: The University Art Gallery Biannual Banner Project
The NMSU University Art Gallery invites artists of all levels, ages, and locations to submit digital files of original works in consideration for our first ever UAG Biannual Banner Project. In conjunction with the exhibition opening of “Las Cruces Creates” the theme of this Banner Project asks local artists from Las Cruces, NM to create original artwork. The project’s objective is to create an outdoor gallery experience, which echoes the exhibition within the UAG. All media are welcome, with no limitation on specific artistic tools or techniques. Marisa Sage, curator of “Las Cruces Creates” and the new director of the UAG and Julia M. Barello, academic department head of the NMSU Art Department – will choose up to 6 artists whose works will be reproduced on to high-quality outdoor banners and hung on the banner systems installed on the outer walls of D.W. Williams Hall. This is an exciting opportunity to have thousands of viewers see your works as they drive off interstate 10 or 25 down University Avenue past the campus of New Mexico State University. A reception for the selected artist will be held in conjunction with the opening of “Las Cruces Creates” on February 6, from 5 p.m-7 p.m. More information on submission deadlines, guidelines, and registration coming soon.
