Last year, the Harvard Art Show exhibited 157 student art pieces for sale. Snoweria Zhang, an artist liasion for this year's show, had several of her own pieces in the production. Now she's canvassing and holding info sessions in hopes of doubling entries this year, building on what she calls a "spectacular" experience.
Part of what makes the show unique is its inclusive nature - undergrads, grads, extension school, non-art majors, and every stripe and color of artist is welcome to submit. And if it's not on canvas, that's fine too. (The only exception is films.)
Zhang says that for artists, part of the experience is the sheer variety under one tent. "It was wonderful that art had brought them together," she muses.
If you're interested, the next info session is 5:30 p.m. January 27 in Lamont Forum Room. Or you can also apply online through this form. You've still got time - the deadline is January 31, 2010.
