The Dance Program 2012 Poster Art Contest!


The Dance Program is holding its second annual POSTER ART CONTEST. We are once again seeking visual representations of material relevant to Dance Program’s philosophy of “global embodied social change”. The question we ask is: How does dance bridge cultural barriers, contexts, and disciplines?
One design will be chosen as the poster for the Student Dance Concert (April 27 and 28, 2012 at 8PM in the LPAC Pearson Hall Theater) and will receive a small award. The concert will feature African, ballet, flamenco, modern, swing and tap and the poster image should reflect the diversity of the concert as well as provide information for advertising (where, when, contact info, etc.). Details about the informational text needed on the poster are available outside the Dance office (LPAC 4).

Size: Finished artwork should be 11” x 17”. Please use RGB, 300dpi if you send a digital image. Emailed images should be less than 8MB compressed (JPG or PDF or Photoshop format) or you can drop off a final printed image or a CD/DVD of your artwork in LPAC 4 to Tara Webb, Arts Administrator for Theater and Dance (x8260 or DEADLINE APRIL 2, 2012.

Parameters: Final image can be a JPG, PDF, or Photoshop project, a digital graphic design, a screen-print, a typographic exploration, a collage, a drawing, a painting, a photo, a photo montage, or any combination of techniques or processes that exist or that you can invent for a printed announcement. (For the sake of authenticity and copyright we’re requesting that all imagery be original or used with proper permission and that imagery does not violate any law or copyright, trademark, publicity or privacy right.)

ALL submitted materials will be considered for future posters and other Dance Program artwork (with the artists’ permissions). We would also like to invite all interested or participating students to sit in on any of our dance classes for inspirational or sketching purposes. For more information about class schedules for observation, please contact Tara Webb ( at x8260 or Susan Grossi (LPAC 4) x2019.
