The Art of STEM Competition is an invitation to the campus community to discover new excitement in their work by exploring the artistic side, and to share with the world their creative endeavors. The Art of STEM Exhibit celebrates the diversity of research at CWRU and its impact, and aims to inspire interest in STEM fields and promote collaborations.
Campus community is invited to submit STEM-related digital images along with a short description intended for a wider audience. The images will be judged by a jury of Case Western Reserve faculty and Cleveland-area art professionals for a chance to win cash prizes and be exhibited at Kelvin Smith Library. All entries will be included in an online exhibit hosted by the Kelvin Smith Library.
The Art of STEM Competition opens on Monday, November 15, 2021, and closes on Monday, January 31, 2022.
