Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies “Donor Wall” Art Competition

by CJS

The Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is soliciting designs for a work of art to honor the Center’s donors.

The design should be appropriate for a Center for Jewish Studies. The finished piece, in any medium, needs to be transportable. The finished piece should not exceed 50 x 100 x 12 inches. You may want to think of a way to incorporate donor names into the design.

  • An approximate budget to create the artwork
  • A rendering of the proposed artwork
  • A sample portfolio via weblink or preferred medium

Honorable Mention: $360

Entrants must be enrolled students at UW-Madison and must be able to produce the proposed work. The finished work will be displayed at the Center for Jewish Studies.
