CALLING ARTISTS: OIT's 2nd Annual Student Art Contest

Sunday, August 13 at 11:59pm

Student Union (SU), TechKnowledgy Bar
2601 N Floyd Rd Richardson, TX 75080


The TechKnowledgy Bar Art Contest was created so OIT could gauge students' thoughts and feelings about our TechKnowledgy Bar establishment. We want students to know our TechBar is not only to help students in their times of need but is also an available interactive social space. Our art contest opens doors for students of every school not to feel gatekept in their artistic abilities or by information technology.

šŸ§ Prompt:

When you hear "TechKnowldegy Bar," do you envision Temoc sipping on knowledge while playing an Esport on one of our featured desktops? Do you imagine the TechBar as a spaceship? Show us what the Tech Bar means to you through any art medium!

šŸŽØTop Candidates: 

The top 3 art creations selected by our OIT team will be voted on by the UTD student body (in-person) at the TechKnowledgy Bar. They will then be awarded exclusive OIT prizes, have their pieces displayed at TechBar for three days, and their photos will be featured on OIT social media as our 2nd OIT Student Art Contest Winners!
