Each year, students in the Department of Art submit pieces, both two-dimensional and three-dimensional, based on a pre-selected theme. This competition selects the best artwork depicting the theme of peace and reconciliation, and is often held in conjunction with the annual Sadat Lecture for Peace. Past themes have included the refugee crisis, the impact of the government’s reaction to 9/11 and its impact on the world, and dignity. A first and second place winner is selected for each category and in some instances students have been selected for honorable mention.
