Entries for the Whitewater Valley Art Competition now being accepted online

Indiana University East is accepting art entries for the 39th annual Whitewater Valley Art Competition (WVAC). The submission process will be electronic at callforentry.org.

Originating in 1978, the WVAC was founded by Tom Thomas, late associate professor fine of fine arts. Thomas taught fine arts at IU East for over 30 years. The WVAC has a history of open judging, allowing the public to be on site when the exhibit entries are excluded or included for the exhibit. In this spirit, digital images of entered works will be projected in an auditorium on the campus of IU East and will be juried by a three-judge panel electronically.
