Our Stories, Our Future

A Night of Student Art and Performance

Friday, May 25, 2018
7:00 PM–9:00 PM

How does art allow us to transcend the boundaries of past, present, and future? We want to know how you engage with time, history, and future narratives through your art! The Rubin Museum invites students and emerging artists for an evening of performance, storytelling, and time travel.

Submissions are open to all, with preference given to college and graduate students, as well as recent graduates. Registration will be open through May 13 and is required to be considered for a spot. Submissions will be viewed on a rolling basis. You will be notified about your participation by May 18.
