2015 Honors Art Show

The Eighth Annual Honors Art Show will be held on Friday, January 30 at 6:00PM, in conjunction with the grand opening of the Ferris State University Art Gallery and the opening ceremonies of the Big Rapids Festival of the Arts. The Honors art pieces will be displayed in UCB 202C with various other displays throughout the Art Gallery and the Lobby area. We have joined forces with the FSU Art Gallery and the Big Rapids FOTA in hopes of gaining a larger viewing audience for our students artwork.

All forms of art may be entered such as photographs, sculptures, drawings, quilts, knitting and paintings; let your imagination run free!  As in previous years, we will provide one canvas for students that require it. The canvases will be ordered in November so students can work on their project over Christmas Break. Judge’s Choice will receive $50 worth of gift certificates and Crowd Favorite will receive $50 as well.

Artwork must be something that you created since the beginning of the fall 2014 semester.

If you do not need a canvas but are entering the art show, let us know what you will be entering.
