This annual juried exhibition features the best work submitted by current MCAD students pursuing degrees in design, fine arts, media arts, and entrepreneurial studies. Participants have a chance to win four $200 cash prizes for Jurors’ Choice, as well as a “People’s Choice” award. Jurors: Pavel Pyś, Curator of Visual Art at the Walker Art Center, and Laura Qvale, VP Creative Director at KNOCK, inc.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Made at MCAD: all-student juried art exhibition has moved online! We need your help to vote for the “People’s Choice” award. This $200 award will be given to the artwork that receives the most “Likes” by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 17. Go to the Made at MCAD photo gallery on the MCAD Gallery Facebook page to vote. Please only vote once and for one artwork. (One like = one vote.) The winners of this award and the winners of the four jurors’ awards will be announced on Monday, April 20. 


We had a record 345 entries this year so the competition was stiff! This year’s jurors selected 49 pieces from 43 different artists. There is a great variety across a wide range of media.
