Stony Brook Graduate Student Organization

Art Competition

The Stony Brook Graduate Student Organization is proud to announce its first art competition!

We have been in the process of renovating the University Cafe, and as part of this process we want to feature art by our very own students. The winning pieces will be prominently displayed in the University Cafe for the next academic year. Any graduate student that is a GSO member is eligible to submit a piece of artwork. Six pieces will be selected for display, with the first place piece winning a $200 prize and two second place pieces winning a $100 prize. Since we will be hanging these on the University Cafe walls, please submit artwork in the form of a painting, drawing or photograph. (We will be framing the winning pieces ourselves.) The theme for this competition will be "Breaking the Rules." Interpret that however you like! For a color theme, use a muted green color to match the style of the University Cafe.

All submitted pieces will be displayed at the GSO Spring Festival on May 9, and we will announce the winners at this event. The deadline for submission will be 5 PM on May 2. Please submit your work together with the Art Competition Application Form during any of the GSO's normal office hours. You may also submit it between 4 PM and 5 PM on May 2 at the GSO office (SAC 227).

If you have any questions, please contact the GSO Media Relations Specialist, Harry Shan He (
