Hello Creativity! You are invited to submit your original artwork that speaks to the process of discovery in the creation of both art and technology for a chance to be awarded $500 and have your artwork displayed in Boise State’s Division of Research and Economic Development.

The selected artist’s/maker’s work will be printed, mounted on quality foam board, exhibited in the Administration Building, room 214, and the maker will receive $500 upon installation of the artwork.

The deadline for submission is Nov. 30; artists will be notified no later than Dec. 10.

All students from all departments are eligible and all genres, styles and media will be considered, including but not limited to:

• Documented installation, performance and ephemeral works

The Division of Research and Economic Development will pay for printing and mounting of the work at the Boise State Sign Shop and the installation of the work. A small award reception will also be hosted. The selected artist/maker will be given the printed work after the exhibition has ended.

To be eligible for consideration, please submit your entries to Fonda Portales, university art curator and collections manager via email at Entries should include:

• The artist’s name, anticipated graduation year and department.
