    RSU Libraries Fourth Annual Creative Showcase

    Stratton Taylor Library

    RSU Library Creative Showcase

    RSU Libraries invites you to contribute your original creative works to our fourth annual Creative Showcase, which will kick off with an Open House on Monday, April 15th at 6 pm, and remain on display through Friday, April 26th. We also ask for your help in encouraging students to participate!

    This year's showcase centers around uniqueness and diversity both within ourselves and our environment, and aims to highlight the talents, voices, and contributions of our Hillcat community through a multimedia display located in the Stratton Taylor Library on the Claremore campus.  Examples of pieces that can be submitted include, but are not limited to, poetry, paintings, drawings, digital arts, sculpture, mixed media, writing, monologues, song, dance, photography, weaving, quilting, and other textile works.

    RSU Students, Faculty, Staff, and Alumni are encouraged to secure your spot in this year's showcase by signing up as soon as possible: https://rsu.libwizard.com/f/CreativeShowcase2024

    *Please note that out of respect for privacy, submissions may remain anonymous if desired.

    Digital and physical submission details and instructions can be found in the form. All entries must be submitted by 5 pm on Monday, April 8th. After the event, physical submissions must be picked up from the Stratton Taylor Library between 8 am on Tuesday, April 30th, and 5 pm on Wednesday, May 8th.

    For students at Bartlesville and Pryor, physical entries may be dropped off at the Bartlesville first-floor Enrollment Center or Pryor's main office. We will work with these departments to ensure safe transportation of your work(s) to the Claremore campus, and back again for pick-up!

    Online students are encouraged to contribute via digital submission if submitting physical entries to one of the three campuses is not possible!

    The extent of your participation is up to you. Anyone submitting work to the Showcase has the opportunity to participate in the Open House event on April 15th and speak with attendees about your work, your process, your inspiration, etc. If you are an artist who chooses to remain anonymous, you will be provided the opportunity to submit a brief statement which will be presented anonymously alongside your work during the Open House.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Kaitlin Crotty by calling 918-343-7717 or emailing [email protected].
