Deadline: Friday, March 16, 2012, 4PM
Awarded by the Spencer Museum of Art (SMA), The Jack and Lavon Brosseau Creativity Awards recognize outstanding creativity and originality by University of Kansas undergraduate students. These awards celebrate KU undergraduate students who engage in creative scholarly work in any discipline. Collaborative work is especially encouraged, in line with the Museum’s commitment to bring together diverse people and ideas around a central topic or object.
The Brosseau Creativity Awards form part of the SMA mission to strengthen, support, and contribute to academic research and teaching at KU, as well as to foster interdisciplinary exploration at the intersection of art, ideas, and experience. The Spencer’s contemporary vision is to present its collection as a living archive that motivates creative work, object-centered research and teaching, and transformative public dialogue.
Lavon Brosseau, from Concordia, Kansas, believes in education and in the profound importance of teaching. The generosity of others made a college education a reality for her, and she wants to return the favor through the establishment of this award. Brosseau states, “There is a deep and almost sacred beauty in literature and in art. Each may deal with the abstract and each may involve interpretation, but each has its own reality that permits the mind to explore and to soar.”
Two Brosseau Creativity Awards will be given, one each in the categories of writing and diverse media. The categories have deliberately been defined in very broad terms, in order to encourage a wide range of submissions from the full spectrum of academic pursuits. The best creative work in any field evidences risk-taking and reflection, provides new insights, forms a part of critical thinking, and generates new ways of understanding.
Submissions to both categories are due Friday, March 16, 2012, at 4 PM. An interdisciplinary review committee determines the honored projects. Awardees for each category will receive cash prizes of approximately $500. As well, the selected projects may be considered for publication in The Register, the Museum’s annual scholarly journal.
Deadline: February 1, 2012
