RITES OF PASSAGE: National Emerging Artists Exhibition [$500 BEST OF SHOW AWARD!!]

Open to Juniors, Seniors and Recent Undergrads

For a fifteenth straight year the Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, presents an open call for artwork from students and the recently graduated in regional, national, and international college undergraduate programs. We believe there exists tremendous unexposed potential among people pursuing degrees in the visual arts.


This exhibit will feature the best work from artists about to receive or recently awarded an undergraduate degree from a regional, national, or international college art or design program. All entrants must have received or be scheduled to receive a college undergraduate degree in 2018, 2019, or 2020, and provide a current academic reference’s contact info.


Rites also offers a Director's Choice Award, a non-monetary recognition of a work chosen by Manifest's Executive Director as deserving particular distinction.


Note: Manifest's board of directors has approved a special entry fee level for this project in order to make it more accessible to students.
