A call to all artists/performers in Janesville, Beloit, Rock County & Green County communities. Blackhawk Technical College wants you to submit an original piece of art/performance representing diversity for our first Diversity and Inclusion Summit, being held in April.

Submit your artwork/performance pieces through this Dropbox link. Please also provide 2-3 sentences explaining your piece/video within your Dropbox entry by 11:59 p.m. April 10.

Judges will view and select 20 original pieces (art/performance pieces) that meet the guidelines, to be displayed, throughout the Blackhawk campuses or presented at the event.

If a piece is shown to be displayed it is the artist's responsibility to drop off/pick up the artwork, to Central Campus. To ensure impartial judging, please put your name on the back of your artwork.

Art Guidelines:

  1. Have fun
  2. Must be original. Please remember to cite all references and resources if using images from a website.
  3. Title and a brief explanation for the piece.
  4. 2-D entries should be 24”x 24” or smaller.
  5. 3-D entries must be sized to sit on a small pedestal.
  6. Be considerate of language use no profanities, vulgarities, or discriminatory language.
  7. Be respectful
  8. Entries must be on firm support making sure that the piece is rigid or be framed. A hanging method must be a consideration for all 2-D entries, Charcoal, pencil, or pastels that are submitted need to be sprayed with a fixative to prevent transfer and smudges. For framed works, eye hooks should be securely anchored at the top, left, and right corners.
  9. On the back please include your name, phone number, and email.
