Texas Tech University

Art Fair

The Department of Psychological Sciences is holding a Diversity in Art Fair and Contest!

The goal of this Art Fair is to illustrate Texas Tech's diversity through artwork that celebrates under-represented cultures and diversity.

The fair will be held at 2-3:30 pm on Friday, November 22nd in the Department of Psychological Sciences, room 301 and is open to everyone in the TTU community. In addition, we are seeking art contributions from students in the Texas Tech community for the contest. Light refreshments will be provided.

The top art piece will each receive an award of $200, and the second and third top pieces will received $150 each. Acceptance of a prize will constitute purchase of the work by the Department of Psychological Sciences. The work will be professionally framed and added to our collection. Due to space constraints, only visual 2D art 24" x 24" or smaller will be accepted. The award recipient must be eligible to receive compensation within the U.S. and any taxes arising from acceptance of the award will be paid by the recipient.

Entries for the contest are limited and will be on a first-come basis. All entries must email their intention to compete no later than Thursday, November 21st at 5:00 pm to ensure space. Please state the number of art pieces you are submitting to the contest and the titles for these works. Artwork must be delivered to the Main Office of the Department of Psychological Sciences no later than 9 am the morning of the fair in order to compete.
