The Stamps School’s annual Undergraduate Juried Exhibition is a showcase of the best work produced by Stamps undergraduate students.
In 2022, we are excited to bring back the Undergraduate Juried Exhibition to its traditional “in-person” format at the Stamps Gallery from February 4 – 26, 2022.
A highly anticipated Stamps School tradition, the Undergraduate Juried Exhibition provides an opportunity for the school to support students whose creative work is recognized as exceptional by invited jurors, with awards announced at the top of the exhibition reception.
Juror selections will be based on digital documentation of work. Juror selection criteria is unchanged from previous years: jurors will be looking for “creative work that is exceptional in ambition, content, and skill.”
Must be a currently enrolled undergraduate major in the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design.
Eligible students may submit one work.
Time-based work must be submitted as a YouTube/Vimeo link.
After submitting, be sure to save your confirmation email.
Deadline for Submissions: November 28, 2021
Juror Decisions Announced: December 17, 2021
Awards Announced: February 4, 2022
Exhibition Reception Event at Stamps Gallery: February 4, 2022
