Calling for Entries for the Global Week

“ARTS SLAM 2019”



As part of Global Week, students may enter a campus-wide competition and submit a work of art in one of eight different categories that best represents the theme, “JUSTICE.”


“JUSTICE” is a desire within all of us expressed in different ways. As you think of what Justice means to you, think about fairness and equality in an area of importance in our society: Racial justice, economic justice, immigration justice, political justice, LGBTQ justice, and so on.


Students may enter their work in any of the following areas:

Performing Arts: • Music • Poetry • Spoken Word • Dance • Theatre  • Musical Theatre

Visual Arts: • Graphic Design • Painting • Sculpture • 3D


Participants will compete in the category of Performing Arts for prizes in 1st Place ($300 edollars), 2nd ($200 edollars) and 3rd Place ($100 edollars), and in the category of Visual Arts for the prize of $200 edollars.


Performing Arts: Keep no longer than 4 minutes per performer/group. Sign up in advance by filling out the audition form and emailing it to Brian Hodge at by Thursday, March 28th.

Visual Arts: Artwork can be submitted at the art gallery during gallery hours by April 1st. The art gallery is located just inside the front door of the Fine Arts building. Download the Arts Slam Submission Form, fill it out completely, and submit it with their artwork (may also fill out a form at the gallery). All artwork must have an artist submission form attached to it.

All artwork must be framed or mounted on poster board or cardboard and be ready to hang. Light items like posters can be hung with poster tape, but if it is heavier, it will need a wire. Photographs must be framed with a wire to hang. Paintings must be framed with a wire or on the stretcher. No wet paintings. Drawings should be mounted on matboard or foamboard.

Please contact Joni Oye-Benintende with any questions.


The event is sponsored by the Office of Student Engagement, Theatre, and Art +Design.
