About the exhibition:
 
In an effort to collect and present new artworks being made by undergraduate artists across New England, we are hosting an open submission call for art. The online exhibition will be curated by the director and staff of the University Hall Gallery at UMass Boston. We will select entries that exemplify skillful creativity and craft. All media and concepts are welcome. We will also be looking for compelling responses to the new paradigm of working remotely. In this way, we hope to gather student artworks from across the region to share their independent responses to this moment, while celebrating their efforts to maintain a studio practice and create art.

To create a successful submission, applicants must follow each rule.
