Its that time again to get the word out about the UW-Superiors
American Indian Art Scholarship Exhibit.
Attached is a form that has ALL the submission rules and regulations for
the 2010 Show but I will include some of the pertinent information in
the body of this message. 2010 AIASE
This exhibit was created in 1995 as an event to highlight the artistic
talents of American Indian youth in an exhibit that also showcased professional
prominent American Indian artists in one exhibit. This annual exhibit
has proven to be a successful recruitment tool for this university in
connecting American Indian high school students (and their families) to
this university. This is an essential diverse program, on our campus and
in our community, that encourages respect and a cultural understanding
of the American Indian community.
In the 2009 Exhibit, we had 17 Professional Native Artists and 43 Native
High School Student Artists that exhibited in the show. The high school
student who places first in the high school competition wins a $1,000.00
scholarship to attend UW-Superior. Brad Barney, a Fond du Lac Ojibwe student
and currently a Senior at Al-Brook High School (Sawyer, MN) took the first
place honor in the last exhibit with his woodcut. To clarify, ONLY the
high school student work is juried for placement in a competition. The
professional artists entries are juried to be accepted into the show and
then the accepted works are placed in the show with no further jurying
