Seeking art for the Campus Art Collection!

Would you like to see your art permanently installed on the UW Madison campus? So would we! We want to celebrate our creative community by finding a permanent home for your art work on our UW campus. Submit your 2-D artwork for consideration for a $100 (prints, photographs, mixed media and all works on paper) or $200 (paintings on canvas) award.

We encourage applicants to submit artworks that celebrate the UW-Madison community through recognizable imagery including architecture, landscapes, student activities, and especially works that highlight diversity and inclusion. We will install the winning artwork in public spaces, so preference will be given to those with broad appeal.

What is the campus art collection?
All artworks on permanent display in administrative and academic UW Madison campus facilities, not including the Chazen Museum of Art, Wisconsin Union, or the UW Hospital and Clinics Authority.
