Call for Midd. Student visual artist nominations!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

The Friends of the Middlebury College Museum of Art invite you to nominate a Middlebury College student whose contribution to the visual arts in the community merits distinction. The Friends have made an annual award to a college student for nearly two decades, and recipients have included sculptors, filmmakers, painters, critics for The Campus, Museum volunteers, and founders of the M Gallery. Anyone [barring a relative of the nominee] can make a nomination.

The nomination form is available and can be submitted online – before the Friday, April 3 deadline — at http://museum.middlebury.edu/news/awards/middlebury_college_student_arts_award_nomination_form

The award will be presented on Sunday, May 3, at Kirk Alumni House, at the Friends’ Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner. The recipient and nominee will be guests of the Museum.

Please address any questions to mlane@middlebury.edu.
