Spanish House Challenge

Who inspires you? The Spanish House residents are on a quest to find out just that with a new initiative that is a win-win for everyone.

7thARTStreet, a drive to gather original artwork that will be hung in the Spanish House, is open to the entire campus community. The Spanish House residents are challenging students, faculty and staff to engage their creative genes, pull out their dusty art supplies and let their arty side take over!

All artwork must be submitted by April 7 and adhere to three specifications:

  • Inspired by a Spanish or Latin American artist (like the Picasso pictured above)
  • Size: 6” x 6”
  • Any text appearing in the piece must be in Spanish (translation assistance is available!)

The submitted artwork will then be showcased at the Spanish House’s traditional end-of-the-semester cultural event and reception in April before being permanently displayed in the residence.

And everyone benefits. Faculty, staff and students have an opportunity to express their creative side, the Spanish House will have new artwork to display and the campus community will learn more about Spanish and Latin American culture. And the best part is, you don’t have to be an artist to participate—if you dig deep enough, you can find a creative spark!

To participate, send an email to 7thartstreet@gmail.com indicating your intent to submit one or more pieces of art and the name of the artist who served as inspiration.
