We rely on your referrals to help us find outstanding candidates who have experience working with youth or a strong desire to become youth development professionals. Please refer current students, alumni, faculty and any others who might be a good fit. 
Candidates may apply online at this link: 
The deadline to apply is Jan. 30 for instructor positions (BFA required) and Feb. 27 for all other staff positions. 
Please let me know if you would like any additional information about this opportunity.

Juried show

Exhibition Momentum is a juried exhibition of the best visual art paired with the best performance art for one night, under one roof.
One catch: you must be 18-30 years old to enter.

Submit in one of two juried categories: visual (painting, sculpture, photo, video, multi-media, etc) or performance (music, theatre, dance, etc.) for a chance to claim eternal glory, $100 cash prize for first place within the category, and a trophy.  There will also be an audience choice cash prize!

The exhibition will be held Friday, February 27, 2015 at 409 South Main from 6pm-9pm.

The Rules:

1.     You must be between the ages of 18-30 to enter.
2.     Please send a maximum of three of any one type of artwork (i.e. three paintings and a sculpture is OK, 15 musical entries is not OK. We will only view/watch/listen to three per category, so choose wisely).
3.     Your submission should include the following:
a.     An email containing the work you would like considered in the following file formats: .jpg for visual, still work, .mov for moving images, and/or .mp3 for audio. Please label the attachment with your full name.  You must include a completed entry form (below).
b.     Considering your work will be sent via e-mail, please make sure that you have an appropriate background setting if you take a picture of your work (i.e. patterns that are behind the work makes it distracting for the judges to judge your work.)
4.     The work must be original and completed in 2013-2014.
5.     Submissions must be e-mailed to by noon on February 9, 2015. 

The fine print:

1. We reserve the right to solicit work at the discretion of the jury.
2. All jury decisions are final.
3. Submission materials will not be returned.

4. There might be more fine print, should your work be selected.
