Meet the ArtWords Judges

Hey, artists and writers, we’re the 2019 ArtWords Judges! We’re part of a panel that will decide the winners of this year’s ArtWords contest—an annual writing competition for students at the University of Minnesota. To enter, select a work of art on view in the Weisman Art Museum’s permanent collection and write a short creative piece—prose or poetry—inspired by it.
