For 50 years Dittmar Gallery has promoted the careers of young artists on campus and artist across the nation. Dittmar Gallery also supports the mission of Norris University Center providing cultural inclusion with art representing the diversity of the community.
Submissions for Well Versed: the Dittmar Memorial Gallery 2024 Community Show are now OPEN.
The deadline for submissions is January 28, 2024. The community show will will feature work from Northwestern students, faculty, staff, alumni, and Chicagoland community members.
Well Versed is an invitation to explore the intertwining of art and language through the unique medium of poetry. This art exhibit prompts visual artists in our community to create works inspired by poems that have touched their lives. Invoking reflection on a sweeping range of themes through a wide range of poetic works, each artist is asked to call upon the visceral emotions and experiences that make us human.
The exhibit will include the art pieces created by members of our community coupled with the text of their poetic inspiration. Well Versed is a conversation that invites cross disciplinary fusion between the visual and literary arts to explore the heartbeat of the human experience.
