KALAMAZOO—Western Michigan University students who wish to share their creative vision for climate change are invited to submit original artwork to the "Spare|Change: The Art of Climate" exhibit Friday, Aug. 9, through Monday, Sept. 9.

The juried art exhibit addressing climate change will run Oct. 10-17 in WMU's Richmond Center for Visual Arts. Caused both naturally and by human-specific impacts, climate change is the immersive and lasting statistical distribution of weather exceeding average norms over given time brackets from millions of years to decades.

All full- and part-time WMU students enrolled in the fall 2013 semester are eligible to submit up to three pieces of original artwork by email to art-sparechange@wmich.edu. Select students will receive a stipend and additional awards will be conferred the night of the opening reception.

Submission requirements

"Spare|Change: The Art of Climate" is sponsored by the WMU Environmental Studies Gwen Frostic Series in partnership with the University's Frostic School of Art and Center for Humanities as well as the Kalamazoo Nature Center and People's Food Co-op.
