87th Annual Student Art Show Call for Artists!

The 87th Annual Student Art Show offers all University of Wisconsin-Madison students the opportunity to enter their work in a competitive juried exhibition. The mission of the Wisconsin Union Art Collection and Art Program is to cultivate an interest in art among all students, faculty, staff and Union members by making art an integral part of their use of the Wisconsin Union and to encourage and recognize creative endeavors by students. All artworks receiving purchase awards will be added to the Wisconsin Union Permanent Collection.

Currently enrolled UW-Madison students (undergraduate, graduate, and special students earning credit(s) towards a degree) of all majors are encouraged to submit original artwork for consideration.  Students who graduated in December 2014 are also eligible to submit works.  Non-credit continuing education or special students not currently earning credit(s) towards a degree are not eligible to enter.  Students will be asked to present a valid UW-Madison student ID at submission drop off.
