Directory artwork sought

The Harvard Directory Project seeks artwork to be considered for the front cover of the 2004-05 Faculty & Staff Telephone Directory. Entrants must be faculty or staff currently on the Harvard payroll.

All types of media will be considered, but the work should represent the Harvard environment or experience. For consideration, submit entries (slide, photograph, or digital image only) to the Harvard Directory Project, 1230 Soldiers Field Road, by June 25. The selected artist will be acknowledged in the directory, and will receive a $300 honorarium, as well as a framed copy of the cover.
