Ivy Tech seeks submissions for Recycled Art Show

TERRE HAUTE — Ivy Tech Community College–Wabash Valley invites amateurs, high school students and professionals to submit art made of recycled materials for its fifth Annual Recycled Art Show. Interested parties are asked to bring their entries to Karen Page in Room H130 at Ivy Tech Community College, 8000 South Education Drive, Terre Haute, between 4 and 6 p.m. Nov. 14 or between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 15.

The Recycled Art Show is being sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the School of Fine Arts and Design at Ivy Tech. The artwork can be from a group or an individual and must be made of recycled materials and its purpose other than its original use. The show accepts only one entry per artist or group for judging. Cash prizes will be given for Best of Show, Best High School Student, Best Amateur and Best Professional.

An Art Show awards reception announcing the winners is planned from 5 to 7 p.m. Dec. 7 in the Oakley Auditorium Art Gallery.

Leslie Stultz, dean of the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences and adviser to Phi Theta Kappa, the honor society for students in two-year colleges, encourages those with artistic talent to submit entries and those who enjoy art to come and support area artists at the reception.

“This art show offers artists the unique challenge of making something new from something old, which tests their vision and creativity. It also allows the viewer to look at recycled art as more than an artistic creation, reminding us in an unusual way that we need to reuse materials in order to protect our environment. So it serves many good purposes,” Stultz said.

The Art Show reception is open to the public. For more information call (812) 298-2227.
