Eco-Art Exhibition

The Eco-Art exhibit at St. Louis Community College-Wildwood is an annual, invitational, juried art exhibition featuring two or three dimensional art work created by local high school students that speaks to an environmental consciousness in either the theme of the artwork or materials used in its creation. Artwork will be on exhibition in the Multipurpose Room at the Wildwood campus the first week of March during regular campus hours.

Past participating schools include Barat Academy Eureka High School, Jefferson High School, Lafayette High School, Marquette High School, Pacific High School, and John F. Kennedy High School. Not all schools participate in the same year.

Submission Requirements
Participating high schools are limited to 10 pieces of artwork with no more than five 3-D pieces allowed. Individual students may submit two pieces of artwork as long as they are in two different mediums. 

At delivery, all schools should present an inventory list of artists' names, a brief description of the artwork and the title of the artwork by completing the School Summary Submission Form.

Each submission also must be accompanied by an artist's statement that is 100 words or less explaining how the artwork relates to the environmental theme of the exhibit. This should be completed by each student using the official Eco-Art Festival Artist Statement form.

Prizes and Awards Reception
All artists and their families are invited to attend a special reception in their honor on the Thursday evening of the exhibition. First, second and third places are awarded to students from each high school. An overall first, second and third place winner is also selected. The first place winner received a $250 award; the second place winner received a $100 award and the third place winner received a $50 award. A “People’s Choice” award is given to the student whose artwork received the most votes from visitors during the week-long exhibition.
