The Clemens Library of the College of Saint Benedict will once again be the venue for an Art Contest and Show sponsored by the joint libraries. The Libraries are inviting any student at CSB/SJU to submit artwork. The show will be juried by members of the Art Department and the Library, and the selected works will be awarded cash prizes and displayed in the gallery space of the Clemens Library. If you entered last year, do not hesitate to enter again this year! Entries to the contest must be submitted by April 28, 2014 to David Malone (rm.A109) at Clemens Library (CSB) or to Kelly Kraemer in the Library Reference Office at the Alcuin Library (SJU). Students may submit up to three pieces unless it is a series which consists of more than 3 pieces. This contest is open to all CSB/SJU students, not just Art Majors!
Work in all
two-dimensional and three-dimensional media will be accepted including
but not necessarily limited to sculpture, painting, prints, drawings,
photographs, jewelry, ceramics, video, computer or artist’s books. Work
created in classes is certainly eligible. All work should be suitably
framed (in whatever way the artist thinks is appropriate to the piece)
and ready for hanging.
The artwork should be accompanied by a
typed statement relating the intentions, motivations, or themes of the
artist. The statement should be approximately 100 words. The prizes
include 1st place of $300, 2nd place of $200 and 3rd place of $100. The
contest is sponsored by the Clemens Library of the College of Saint
Benedict and the Alcuin Library of Saint John's University with the
assistance of members of the CSB/SJU Art Faculty.

Libraries nor the jury committee will be responsible for damage to works
while in our possession. Submission to this contest shall imply
