Environmental Art Show – Call for Art – 2023

Environmental Art Show Call for Art

The Weinberg Memorial Library is seeking submissions for our annual exhibit of Environmental Art.

The art show will be held in the Charles Kratz Scranton Heritage Room on the 5th floor of the Weinberg Memorial Library from April 14-25, 2023. In addition to the physical exhibit, we will be offering the option to also exhibit virtually. The virtual exhibit will debut online on April 14, 2023.

Submissions are open to all and we encourage submissions by University of Scranton students, staff, faculty, and alumni.

Environmental Art promotes the natural beauty of our environment and the ideal practice of sustainable living through artworks of all types, including painting, photography, repurposed goods, sculpture, video and more.

Welcome to My World is the theme for 2023. We encourage artists to consider developing artwork around this year’s theme. Share your vision of how you see the world, how the state of the environment affects you and others, how you interact with the environment, or how you incorporate sustainable living and care for our common home in your daily life.

The deadline for all submissions is set for Wednesday, March 31st, 2023. All physical works of art can be dropped off at the Library Services Desk on the 1st floor of the Library. All artwork is returned after the art show ends.

If you are submitting digital artwork, you can submit your artwork at the following link:

One Week Left! – Application Deadline for Library Research Prize is Monday, December 12, 2022

The Bonnie W. Oldham Library Research Prize

There is one week left to apply for the Bonnie W. Oldham Library Research Prize! Project submissions for Summer and Fall 2022 are due Monday, December 12, 2022 by 4:00 pm.

The Bonnie W. Oldham Library Research Prize recognizes excellence in research projects that show evidence of significant knowledge in the methods of research and the information gathering process and use of library resources, tools, and services.

New this year: The selection criteria have been updated and refreshed in 2022-2023 to better recognize the diversity of projects on campus. Visit the Selection Criteria and Judging information on the prize website to learn more.  

Three prizes of $500.00 each will be awarded to the winning individual student or group in the following categories: Undergraduate Foundational (100-level courses), Undergraduate Upper-level (200- to 400-level courses), and Graduate. If won by a group, the award will be split equally among the group members. All you need to do is write a 500- to 700-word essay describing your research process and how you used the Library in completing the project. Check out our Tips web page for updated advice on how to craft the best 500- to 700-word essay you can about your research. 

A statement of faculty support from the instructor who assigned the research project is also required for each submission.

Winners will be announced in May after the deadline for Intersession and Spring projects. Although there are two different dates to submit an application, only one judging will take place.
