Art Entry

Has reading Lab Girl inspired you to explore your creativity and respond to its themes through art? Or maybe you're working through the Big Read Challenge on Beanstack and want to fulfill the art challenge. Maybe it’s both! Now is your chance to share your creation with other NEA Big Read: Wichita participants.

We’re looking for different art forms to share on the NEA Big Read: Wichita website that respond to themes from Lab Girl. We’re accepting entries in the following media:

  • Painting
  • Drawing
  • Pottery / Ceramics
  • Jewelry Making
  • Digital Photography
  • Poetry
  • Short Story
  • Musical
  • Performance

Participants of all ages can submit their artwork to be featured on the NEA Big Read: Wichita website. Submission of artwork does not guarantee it will be featured. Work must be created in response to reading Lab Girl or a companion title.

How to Submit

For 2D or 3D artwork, please submit a digital scan or photograph of the finished work. For poetry or short story submissions, please save your work as a PDF file and submit.

For musical and performance work, please provide a link to a digital file of the work via a video sharing site (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.).

All work submitted must be family-friendly. Submissions will be monitored by staff at the Wichita Public Library.

Thank you!
