The Love Doors Contest
Sponsored by the Weisman Art Museum and Comstock Hall –
“The Weisman Art Museum and Comstock Hall are sponsoring a door decorating contest to coincide with Valentine’s Day in conjunction with the museum’s exhibition, Deck the Halls. Personalize your door with designs, images, and objects that convey some of your ideas about LOVE. Feel free to express yourself about more than just romantic love.
Gift certificates to the Weisman Museum Store of $100, $75, and $50 will be awarded to the top three LOVE Doors.
Doors will be judged on Monday, February 12 by a team of experts: Colleen Sheehy, Director of Education at the Weisman, Michael Baynes, Comstock Hall Director, and Kim Grocholski, Comstock Hall President. Winners will be announced Tuesday, February 13.
You must follow the resident halls regulations about door decorations (e.g., only 2/3s of the door can be covered; no electricity can be used; nothing can be affixed permanently to the door.) Please check your residence hall handbook or consult your resident assistant. Doors that do not adhere to the regulations will have to be disqualified from the competition.
The Files do not provide insight into the winning Door design from this 1996 contest… I wonder who created the best “Love Door”?
