Three university-level artist-educators will select works of art to be included in the exhibition for technical excellence and interpretation of the 2016 theme, Social Matters.

Theme: Social Matters

We are social beings, living in communities, interacting with others, nurturing relationships, and relying on each other for our basic needs. Matters arise involving social justice, social circles, social networks, social change, social responsibility and others. What are the social matters that affect your world? What do you mean by social? How are social matters addressed in our larger society? Which social matters will have an impact on the way we interact with each other?
