Opportunities

Studies show that students that get involved while in school are far more likely to build a strong portfolio and resume, be successful in gaining entrance into juried and invitational exhibits, gain significant internships, employment and entrance into graduate school after graduation.
  • Most art related opportunities are posted as they come up on the first floor of studio arts ART bulletin boards.
  • Emails from the Chair of Art to all majors and minors are usually sent out informing students of art opportunities.
  • Students who join Art Agency are guaranteed to hear about departmental exhibition opportunities.
  • Contact individual art professors for other art opportunities in specific art areas.

Juried Student Art Exhibit

  • Any UW-Green Bay student may enter but most of the entries come from AND majors and minors.
  • Work is generally due in early November. Watch for signs posted on the Studio Arts first floor bulletin boards and emails.
  • Students may enter up to three works in 2D or 3D media.
  • The JUROR is a professional artist or curator from outside of UW-Green Bay. He/She selects the work to be exhibited and also selects the Jurors Award winners. Each year there is a different juror.
  • Other Awards may also be given by the Chancellor, Provost, Dean of Liberal Arts & Sciences, AND, University Union, Art Agency, Art Faculty, and area businesses. The awards are a little different each year at the opening reception. Generally the awards total around $1,000 - $2,000 in cash and purchase awards.
  • Students may seek advice from any art faculty member regarding their entries and how to best present their work.
  • The cost is $3 for the first work and $1 for additional work up to a total of three works.
  • Entry forms and Labels to be attached to the works entered are available during the drop off times in the Lawton Gallery.
  • Contact the Curator of Art or any of the art faculty with questions.

Senior Art Exhibit

There are usually two Senior Art Exhibits every spring semester depending on the number of students participating. The exhibits are in the Lawton Gallery (Theatre Hall 2nd Floor).

  • Participating in the Senior Art Exhibit is an honor that is open to AND majors who have the interest, skills, and support of at least one member of the art faculty who becomes their Senior Exhibit Advisor.
  • Students who plan to graduate in December and desire to have a Senior Exhibit MUST install their exhibit in the spring semester PRIOR to their December graduation date.
  • Students who plan on installing a Senior Exhibit MUST be enrolled with their Senior Exhibit Advisor during the fall semester prior to the intended spring exhibit and during the spring semester of the exhibit. This can be an advanced studio course or an independent study. Mounting a Senior Exhibit is time consuming and the conceptualization and development of the work MUST begin before the spring.
  • Students MUST follow the Senior Exhibit Guidelines and it is the graduating senior's responsibility to get all paperwork in on time and to communicate to their Faculty Advisor.
  • Professor Minkyu Lee is the Art Faculty Liaison who collects the required paperwork and communicates to the art faculty and the Curator of Art. Contact her as needed.
  • Each participant in the Senior Exhibits will be given feedback by the entire art faculty using the Senior Exhibition Evaluation Form. The senior(s) with the highest evaluation(s) will be awarded the designation of Outstanding Senior Exhibit. The feedback results of the participating seniors evaluations will be shared with the appropriate individual senior through their art faculty advisor.

Students participating in the Senior Exhibits are also given the opportunity to offer one or more of their works for faculty selection into the University Permanent Collection. Selection into the Permanent Collection is an honor as it means your work will be taken care of and displayed on campus. See the Curator of Art for more information about this.
