First Prize: $5,500
Second Prize: $4,000
Third Prize: $3,000

The Arlene Schnitzer Visual Arts Prize is the most important visual arts
prize awarded annually by Portland State University’s School of Art +
Design. It is meant to recognize excellence in visual art created by all
students pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees from the School of A+D.

ELIGIBILITY
Students must be majoring in programs in the PSU School of Art + Design and
enrolled in half-time or greater status during Spring 2015 (prior winners
of this award are not eligible). Winners will be announced in June 2015 and
must be willing and able to display and help install their work at the
exhibit held in their honor during Fall term 2015. Please note that this
applies to all A+D students creating visual work, not just those pursuing
an undergraduate major or MFA in Art Practice.

JUDGING
A jury consisting of School of Art + Design faculty and professionals from
the visual arts community in the region will judge the submissions and
identify the winners. Three awards will be made, though the jury can, at
its discretion, decide to not make awards should they determine that none
of the entries merit the recognition.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
Entries are due on or before Monday April 13, 2015

All submissions will be via *pdx.slideroom.com <http://pdx.slideroom.com>*;
$10 fee to Slideroom required.

Slideroom submissions include electronic uploads of the following:

a) A 100 word artist statement

b) A brief (2 minutes maximum) video artist’s statement that discusses the
media and concept you are exploring. This could include process, purpose,
intention and your own academic and professional goals.

c) Upload up to 7 images. An “image” presents a single work. Up to three of
the 7 images can be video or audio clips of no more than 90 seconds. Each
clip must be a single work, or taken from a single work.
Multiple works presented within an image will cause that image to be
disqualified. Exceptions: if one of the presented works is a cohesive
series, then one installation image and one detail image is permitted. If
one of the presented works is a designed campaign or packaging series or
design system, then an image of no more than 4 pieces and one detail image
may be used to represent the system. In no cases will more than a total of
7 images, as defined above, be considered by the jury. Failure to adhere to
the requirements listed above will cause the application to be dismissed.

d) By applying, applicants agree to participate in the award exhibition
the following fall, should they be awarded a prize.

Collage Collabo!

large
Collage Collabo is an event created in conjunction with Life Long Work Month. The event is an opportunity to build discussion around art and design, work collaboratively, and explore the medium of collage. We will also show a specifically curated series of art centric youtube videos. Food and drinks will also be available. Space is limited so please arrive on time.

Life Long Work Month selects twelve students from the School of A + D to take over the AB Gallery and transform it into the collaboration space they want to see. Running throughout the month of January, the activities of this pop-up studio are driven by its participants.

Sponsored by the Friends of Graphic Design.
