ISU Department of Art announces call for entries for ‘Vigilance: Veterans Art Exhibition”

The Idaho State University Department of Art is seeking entries for the first annual veterans art exhibition, "Vigilance" to be held at the John B. Davis Gallery inside the Fine Arts building.

Entries will be accepted in person at the gallery between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Nov. 4 – 6. This exhibition, which will open on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, and run through Nov. 22, will provide those who have served or are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces the opportunity to share their art, as an expression of their personal life experiences.  "Vigilance" is part of a series of events titled, "Experiencing Conflict," which is planned for the fall semester at ISU.

There are no fees to submit works; however, a maximum of three works per artist will be accepted.  The maximum size for two-dimensional works is 5’ x 7’ and for three-dimensional works is 3’ x 3’ x 6’. The maximum weight for any single work is 75 pounds.  All media are acceptable. Assistance with bringing artwork into the building can be arranged by contacting Ryan Babcock at 208-220-6895. This event is sponsored ISU Department of Art and Committee for the Study of Violence, Conflict and War in Society.

Anyone who is a veteran or currently serving in any branch of the United States Armed Forces is welcome to submit works for exhibition.  Family members of deceased veterans may also submit works created by these veterans.
