Now accepting submissions for the UMC Student Arts ProgramThe UMC Student Arts Program collects original art created by the CU Boulder student community and displays it throughout the building.

With this year’s theme of Empower the Future, we are looking for original pieces – painting, photography, multimedia, etc. – that explore what empowerment means to you and how you demonstrate empowerment within your art.

Submission guidelines are listed below. By submitting artwork, the artist(s) agrees to transfer ownership of the art to the UMC if the piece is selected for the program. Prize money is available each year for the highest ranking artwork. The amount of the prize money varies on a yearly basis.
