The North Carolina Museum of Art requests submission of art in any medium not to exceed 30 x 24 x 8 inches. Students should use the Museum’s collection as inspiration for a work of their own rather than try to copy a particular piece. Works can be in any medium.
In addition to the exhibition of 2-D works, the North Carolina Museum of Art invites students to submit video shorts, 30 seconds to 3 minutes in length, inspired by a work in our permanent collection. Once video shorts are accepted, there will be no need to deliver works in person, since the video will be uploaded.
Students can submit up to two works of art. This can be any combination of two videos, two 2-D works or one of each. Prizes of $200, $100, $50, and honorable mentions for each category will be awarded at Art Scene, the annual spring teen event on Saturday April 13. Selected works will be exhibited during the summer in the Museum’s Education Gallery. Works of art will be juried based upon originality, craftsmanship, and personal expression of the artist.
There is no entry fee.
Along with the image or video, students should also include an artist statement between 150-300 words that explains which work from the Museum’s collection they’ve chosen and how it inspired their own piece.
Deadline & Notification
Deadline to submit works is April 1, 2013. Juried results for all entries will be posted on the blog by April 10, 2013.
Delivery of Accepted 2-D Works
Students whose work is selected for Teens, Inspired are responsible for delivering their work to the Museum by April 30 and picking it up after the exhibition. The exhibition will be on view in the Education Gallery July 26, 2013-October 20, 2013.
