Submission Guidelines for Student Art in the Library Fall 2016 Exhibition
Who Can Submit
All currently enrolled students (undergraduate and graduate) are eligible to submit up to three (3) original works of art for consideration.
Entries will be evaluated by the Art in the Library Committee and all decisions are final. (The committee will not discriminate on the basis of age, race, religion, national origin or ancestry, color, gender, disability, sexual orientation, marital/parental status, etc.)
Selections will be made based on artistic merit; the committee’s goal is to select a broad representation of styles, content and media. Artwork may be rejected based on the following:
- Excessive weight or dimensions of the artwork (or other space constrictions)
- Inappropriate for viewing by the general public, including children
- Graphic depictions of violence or sex
- Advertising of products or services
All applicants will be notified of the results via email.
How to Submit your Work
Submit you work by clicking "Submit Artwork" in the left menu. You will be taken to an online submission form. You will be asked to review and agree to a non-exclusive distribution license. This license
agreement is to give The Curators of the University of Missouri on behalf of Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) Library permission to post the material openly on the Web and to take the necessary steps to preserve the material (preserving the material might mean that the files will need to be converted to a different or newer version of a file format if the existing file format or the hardware/software needed to read it becomes obsolete). Artists who submit their work to the Missouri S&T Research Repository retain the copyright to their work, unless they explicitly give it away to a third party. The Missouri S&T Library does not seek or claim copyright on any of the works you submit. A non-exclusive distribution license means that artists may make other copies of their work available on other web sites or through other means without obtaining permission from the Missouri S&T Library. They may also formally publish their work, in the same form or in a revised form, without obtaining permission from the Missouri S&T Library. The Missouri S&T Library charges no fee for the service and collects no revenue from the archive.
If your work is selected for exhibition will be required to sign an Art Loan and Exhibition Agreement
. This agreement defines the terms and conditions of the exhibition of your art work in the Library's exhibition spaces.
