Club Interest *

In the past, we have tried publicizing our art show with posters around campus, graphics and videos on social media channels of various kinds, graphics on the TVs in the Student Center and Science Building and press releases sent to campus and local media to say when entry forms are due and when the show will take place. However, we continue to get feedback saying "More Publicity." How else can we publicize this show so you will know when entry forms are due?

The NWOSU Art Society is always looking for new ideas and new people to join our group. Please provide any comments about the show or ideas for our club.

By clicking the box below, you guarantee that all the information provided above is accurate, entered art work is your own and created by you and has not been entered into the NAS Art Show before.

 By checking this box, you are providing your electronic signature.
