Moffitt Library invites undergraduate students to submit their art or design works for 2018-2019 academic year to be displayed on floors 4 and 5. This opportunity is open to current undergraduates at UC Berkeley. Pieces that have been displayed can be viewed online: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/libraries/moffitt-library/student-art
This year's theme is #MyLastTrash in support of the Zero Waste initiative at the University of California system. https://zerowaste2020.universityofcalifornia.edu/ Your art should support how excessive trash leads to climate change and encourge members of the Cal community to try and reduce the trash they create.
Some ideas include:- Photographs of one student's trash over a week- Paintings of a better sustainable future- Mock up of sustainable designs - such as boxed water- A research poster on the amount of waste created on campus- Art showing things people throw away in a day- A photo series of a dumpster or people throwing away their trash- A photo showing trash decomposing- Design of something that can be used on campus to help eliminate trash- Data visualization showing the declining creation of trash on campus such as in the dining hall- Data visualization on water bottle use
We are able to accept flat, wall-mounted works such as (but not limited to):- paintings- drawings- photography- data visualizations- architectural designs- research posters- graphic designs
Full guidelines can be found online: https://goo.gl/HohT7U.
The library is not able to offer financial compensation for display of the works.
