Discover the Fine Arts at M State

From its beginning, M State - Fergus Falls has recognized the importance of the arts to a well-rounded college education. Participation in the arts encourages students to be expressive, creative and think on their feet - attributes that are valued in all intellectual fields and walks of life. On the Fergus Falls campus, our goal is to encourage artistic excellence and to provide the benefits of the arts - visual, music and theatre - to all our students and to the broader community of Fergus Falls though the many concerts, performances and rotating art exhibits that are open to the public. You're invited to discover the arts at M State - Fergus Falls!

Inaugural Art Exchange and Exhibition

Artists with ties to three diverse academic institutions are enthusiastically and warmly invited to participate in a unique exchange and exhibition during this academic year. The Art Department at Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell with The Department of Visual Art at Minnesota State Community and Technical College-Fergus Falls and The Department of Art at Northland Community and Technical College-Thief River Falls are joining together to host a Mail Art Exchange and Exhibition.

Any media, any style, any theme and any content of Artwork is accepted and encouraged for this exhibit, but only two-dimensional Artworks on paper that measure 5" by 7"will be accepted. All Artworks submitted that conform to the prospectus' guidelines will be accepted (but those Artworks that might be questionable for inclusion in a family friendly environment may be exhibited in an alternate and less publicly accessible forum).

Graphic design students, graphic designers and others with any association at all to the participating universities/colleges are invited to enter logo designs, again in 5" by 7" format, using and emphasizing the postal abbreviations for Minnesota and New Mexico (MN and NM). The winning graphic design entry, selected from submissions from both the Minnesota and the New Mexico institutions, will be used as a logo for the exhibit.

The Artworks submitted by individuals with connections to the Minnesota schools are due to The Department of Visual Art at Minnesota State Community and Technical College-Fergus Falls by November 22, 2013 (to be submitted to John Charles Cox, Department of Visual Arts), and will be sent to New Mexico for their official public exhibition during Spring Semester of 2014. The exchange exhibition at ENMU-Roswell is tentatively planned for Thursday, April 17, 2014 through Friday, May 9th, 2014. Meanwhile, those Artworks contributed by artists in New Mexico (check with Jennie Bower in Roswell, New Mexico for information about submission in that area) will be sent to Minnesota for the official public exhibition to open in May of 2014. The exchange exhibition at M State-Fergus Falls is tentatively planned for Friday, May 9, 2014 through Friday, August 29th, 2014.

A full prospectus and entry form is available below.
