The College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences’ Diversity, Collaboration, and Inclusion Committee is sponsoring an art contest as part of their campaign to nurture a Zion community, one that is based on unity, respect, and charity towards all, at BYU. They hope that this call for art submissions will inspire students to reflect on what it means to be a disciple of Christ and stand up for social injustice.
The theme for this year is Building a Diverse Community Today for a Zion Community Tomorrow. Students are encouraged to internalize this message and create something that accurately shares what that message means to them.
This call is open for submissions beginning November 30th and will close January 11th, 2021. Students may create submissions in any medium they desire, as long as the following criteria are met:
*Student must be a Family, Home, and Social Sciences Major
*The entry may be any medium, but must be smaller than 2’ x 3’
*Student must agree that if chosen, their work will be donated to the college of FHSS
*Student must fill out the accompanying form (see bottom) to be considered
*Only one entry per student
Entries will be judged by a panel of DCI committee members and staff representatives based on aesthetic merit and how well the piece reflects the prompt. Winners will be chosen and will be awarded as follows:
1st Place: $300
2nd Place: $200
3rd Place: $100
Honorable Mention: $50
All students are encouraged to participate in this wonderful opportunity to reflect on the idea of fostering a Zion community at BYU. Submitted works will be displayed at the College, replacing artwork previously hung, as a way to demonstrate our commitment to upholding principles of diversity and inclusion. All artwork will be displayed/showcased throughout Black History Month.
For any questions, please contact Lita Little Giddins.
All submissions due by January 11th, 2021.
