OSU Urban Arts Space invites central Ohio high school students to apply for the 2012 High School Juried Exhibition. Applicants are encouraged to submit pieces in any visual or performing arts medium.
Artists can visit uas.osu.edu/2012hsje to complete an online application, or download a PDF to mail to or drop off at OSU Urban Art Space. Entries must be submitted or postmarked by May 1.
Visual media will be on view at OSU Urban Arts Space, located in the historic Lazarus Building at 50 W. Town Street in downtown Columbus, from June 23 through July 28. Performances will debut during the public exhibition reception on Saturday, June 23 from 6 to 8pm. Submissions will be juried and accepted for the exhibition by a panel of community members and artists in mid-May, and three prizewinners will be announced during the reception.
Former Urban Arts Space high school interns Olivia Wallace and Meena Oberdick have organized this unique exhibition in order to help introduce young, aspiring artists to the professional art community in Columbus. Participating students will learn about art installation and the exhibiting process from Space staff and exhibition coordinators, gaining practical skills in a gallery setting that they may not be able to attain in the classroom.
