Art Walk

2019

Art Contest:

Present Issues, Future Solutions

As the effects of the climate crisis become more pervasive, it is imperative that we find solutions. At this year’s Climate Correction conference, we are presenting our Art Walk expo to illustrate the visuals that inspire change. We believe that meaningful art can connect us with our senses, and that the response can prompt thought, engagement, and action amongst the community.

This year’s theme for the Art Walk is “Present Issues, Future Solutions”. We’d like participants to highlight community or technology-based solutions in their art pieces, real or imagined. All mediums are accepted, including ceramics, digital, metalwork, recycled materials, photography, and beyond. We encourage student artists to use underlying messages and include environmental, social, and economic concepts that may often be overlooked.

Submission Form

For consideration, all applicants must be enrolled at the University of Central Florida and have a graduation date no earlier than Spring 2020. A limit of one art piece can be submitted for each artist. All artists must submit a completed submission form, along with accompanying photos or videos displaying the respected submission.
