Superintendent's Office Art Show Guidelines
Rules and Regulations
Drafted: Fall 2014
Teachers can submit as many works as they see fit.
Number of works selected:
3 - Elementary School
3 - Middle School
3 - High School
All work will be submitted electronically to the Superintendent’s Art Show Coordinator (SAS Coordinator).
Each image must have:
The SAS Coordinator will mat, frame, and install all work selected, as well as maintain the show.
Framed work or work on canvas will not be framed/reframed, but will hang in existing state.
Artwork must be submitted to the SAS Coordinator prior to the following Arts Advocacy meeting dates: May, October, December, March.
Work will be displayed for 9 weeks. New works will be selected and placed in these months: September, November, January and April.
Participating Teachers and Students PLEASE NOTE: You will not be able to collect before the end of the 9 week time frame. All work selected will be hung for the full 9 weeks; therefore, work in the Superintendents Show is not available for other shows (for example: VASE, LISD District Shows).
The show can house up to, but no more than, three 3-D works.
The 3-D works must be ready for installation upon delivery to the SAS Coordinator.
Selection of Work
The selection committee is made up of 3 or more members of the Arts Advocacy Committee.
The process for selecting works will be the “sticky note method”. Each member of the committee will be given a proportional amount of sticky notes and then proceed to vote for their selection in each category (High, Middle, Elementary school).
The 3 works in each category that gather the most votes will be the works selected for the show.
