“Call for Artists” Invites CSUN Community to Submit Artwork for new Oasis Wellness Center at the USU

April 3, 2015


Northridge—The University Student Union is offering all CSUN students, faculty and staff an opportunity to potentially exhibit their artwork at the new Oasis Wellness Center. Scheduled to open in Fall 2015, the Oasis will be a welcoming destination where students can find serenity and relaxation amid the rush and activity of campus life. 

“Submitting artwork for the Oasis Wellness Center is a unique chance for any member of the CSUN community to leave their footprint on our campus and be recognized for their exceptional work,” said SRC Director, Jimmy Francis. “A wide variety of mediums are welcomed including painting, sculpture and photography.” 

The Oasis will offer nutrition counseling, meditation, massages, acupuncture, sleep pods and workshops focused on wellness and managing stress—all intended to promote student academic success. 

In keeping with the Oasis mission to help students relax, revive and succeed, the desired themes for its exhibited art include natural materials, biomorphic forms, presence of water, sense of relaxation, visual connections with natural systems and inspiring scenes in nature. 

The deadline to apply is Friday, May 1, 2015. Artists will be notified of their acceptance on or before May 15, 2015. Artist compensation will be negotiable after review of submission. Each artist whose work is chosen for display will also be invited to the Oasis VIP grand opening event. 

To apply, complete and submit the entry form online at csun.edu/oasis/call-for-artists. Include a photo of the piece, a photo of the piece in progress or a sketch of the proposed piece.
