Art of STEM: Competition & Exhibit — Submit your image by Feb. 15!

Celebrate the creative nature of science! Kelvin Smith Library is now accepting submissions for “Art of STEM,” an art competition and exhibit presented in conjunction with the national “STEM to STEAM” movement that encourages the integration of art and design with science, technology, engineering and mathematics to fuel global innovation for a prosperous future.

“Art of STEM” challenges Case Western Reserve University faculty, students and staff to capture or visually communicate the beauty inherent to scientific enterprise and research investigation in the form of a digital image. The competition is also open to Cleveland Institute of Art students who collaborate with a member of the Case Western Reserve community, as well as any student in grades 9-12 who currently attends public, private or home school in Cuyahoga County.

Contestants are encouraged to submit the following types of images for entry in this competition:

  • Images created by machines in a lab;
  • Photographic images of nature, scientific phenomena, or people at work on a science-related project;
  • Science-related hand drawn images;
  • Computer-generated or digitally enhanced scientific images;
  • Any other type of STEM-related image presented as art.

In addition, select images will be printed and displayed in an exhibit in the Kelvin Smith Library Art Gallery and other showcase areas throughout the library during March 2015. These entries will also be featured online in the library’s virtual art gallery.


Special Collections Exhibitions ‌

The following exhibits are free and open to the public during regular business hours.

"The Alice Project"
Location: KSL Art Gallery (1st floor) and throughout the library

Last year, students of the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Illustration Department were inspired by a local book collector's exceptional collection of illustrated Lewis Carroll books. The resulting project was a book, Alice, which contains new illustrations to Lewis Carroll’s works by the students. Prints of the students’ work are displayed in the gallery, and additional student works can be found on display throughout the library.

"Universities at War: The CWRU Student Perspective of World War I"
Location: Hatch Reading Room / Dampeer Room (2nd floor)

Presented by Kelvin Smith Library, “Universities at War” is an exhibit that investigates the messages students received about the war through various print culture media. Posters, postcards, literature, advertisements, flyers and pamphlets will be on display, as well as university curriculum and student responses through yearbooks and other student publications. The exhibit also features a collection of WWI propaganda posters generously loaned by Stan Berger.
