The submission deadline for the 2005 Schnitzer Prize in the Visual Arts is Monday, April 4. Three prizes ($1,500, $900, $600) will be awarded to registered MIT students based on bodies of work. Each artist must submit a completed application form and at least three pieces of original work or one piece of original work plus visual representations of other originals (to be available for later viewing), as well as a written personal statement concerning his/her creative interest as it pertains to the works and art in general. Materials will be accepted from noon-5 p.m. in Room W20-429. Forms and guidelines can be downloaded at web.mit.edu/saa.
The award was established by the Student Art Association through an endowment from Harold and Arlene Schnitzer of Portland, Ore. Schnitzer, a real estate investor, graduated from MIT in 1944 with a degree in metallurgy. Winning entries will be displayed in the Wiesner Student Art Gallery from May 13 through June 30.
