FARMINGTON, ME (July 11, 2019)—The University of Maine at Farmington invites emerging artists to submit artwork for the 2019-20 Art on Campus series. UMF seeks 2D artworks (or video/time-based work for monitor display) that explore and engage with contemporary issues and ideas.
Work will be displayed throughout the University’s campus. Selected artists will be offered an honorarium to visit our campus and present an artist talk to UMF students and the community. The Art on Campus mission is to provide UMF students, faculty, staff, and residents of western Maine with opportunities to engage with visiting artists, experience distinct artistic mediums, and gain a deeper appreciation for the importance of art in public spaces and in civic life
