ACU students submit original artwork to help design annual Summit

Each year, Abilene Christian University’s Summit lectureship series brings students, faculty, church leaders and Christians from across the nation to Abilene to participate in classes, lectures, coffee houses, concerts, art exhibits and experiences that foster conversations about faith in practice. This year, the Office of Ministry Events is sponsoring a student art competition, asking students to submit original photographs, drawings or other artwork that express this year’s Summit theme, “On the Mountain of God: Exploring Exodus.” {{more}}”Throughout Scripture and even in contemporary experience, mountains were places where people sought God,” said Danielle Lough, ministry events coordinator. “Moses received his calling and later the commandments in conversation with God on a mountain. Jesus prayed and preached from mountains. We want artwork that creatively expresses this mountain theme.”The winner of the contest will not only have their artwork featured in Summit publications and advertising, but will also receive a $100 cash prize and have the opportunity to submit a brief narrative about the work. The winner will be chosen and announced by the Ministry Events team on March 1.Submissions will only be accepted in electronic form, and the deadline for entries is February 15. All current ACU students may enter and multiple entries are accepted. For more information about submission details, contact Danielle Lough at 325-674-3750 or email her at danielle.lough@acu.edu.
