Every year, student creativity goes on display at the Wright Museum of Art for the Beloit College Annual Student Juried Art Exhibition. All students, regardless their major, are invited to submit artwork from the past year, and a juror selects works to display as part of the final exhibit.
A Beloit College tradition since the 1980s, the Exhibition draws more than 100 entries and culminates in a show of approximately 30 works. The Juror’s Choice winner receives $100, and the First Place winner $25. Three additional honorable mentions are also selected.
This year’s juror is Rafael Francisco Salas, assistant professor and chair of the art department at Ripon College. He received his MFA from The New York Academy of Art. His own work focuses on “haunted places, ghost stories…and the people that inhabit them.”
The opening reception for the show will take place on Thursday (Nov. 18) at 4:30 pm in the Wright Museum.
The exhibition will be on view in the South Gallery and will run from Thursday until Dec. 8.
