Ocean View Art Competition & Exhibition

Calling all Rhode Island Student Artists

The University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography has launched the Ocean View art competition and exhibition. Ocean View is a competition that encourages youth to interpret the ocean through visual art. Rhode Island students in grades kindergarten through high school are invited to participate. Check out this webpage for more information.

This competition and exhibition explores the many ways in which we are all connected to the ocean. As URI Graduate School of Oceanography celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2021, we want to know from RI students: What is your ocean story? A completed commitment form must be submitted by all interested students no later than March 1st. Questions? Email Andrea Gingras, agingras@uri.edu
