Celebrate the ArtWords writing competition winners and the 2020 edition of The Tower, the University’s annual undergraduate art and literary magazine. Enjoy food, free copies of The Tower, live music, and readings from ArtWords winners and magazine contributors.

By the way, it’s not too late to submit to ArtWords! To enter the competition, students should visit the galleries, select a piece of art on display from the museum’s permanent collection, and write a piece of poetry or prose (maximum word count: 300) that is in some way a creative reflection or a response to the artwork. More information is available at the museum’s front desk. All UMN graduate and undergraduate students are welcome to participate. Submit here by January 26, 2020 >>
