Opportunity for Student Artists!
Help Hostelling International Chicago and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2014 with your artwork!
Twenty student artists will be selected to paint individual pieces honoring the life and work of Dr. King and the continuing struggle for social justice today on the 2nd floor windows of Hostelling International Chicago.
A panel of judges will evaluate the artwork and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes will be awarded to the students whose works best represent the spirit of the exhibit.
• 1st Place: $300
• 2nd Place: $200
• 3rd Place: $100
All artists who are invited to participate will receive recognition at the artists’ reception held on Tuesday, January 21, 2014.
Students must submit a portfolio of up to 10 images of recent work along with the submission form in person or by mail by October 14, 2013. Portfolios may be submitted in person at the hostel or electronically to Sharday El-Assar (see contact information below).
Artists selected to create paintings for the windows will be notified by October 28, 2013. The final paintings will be on display on Martin Luther King Day through the end of February.
