The University of Dayton and the Dayton Society of Artists are excited to announce The Icons of UD Basketball Call for Art.
The Icons of UD Basketball Call will commission six artists to create original artwork of six iconic figures known within the UD Basketball organization.
The panel will choose six finalists based on their submissions. Posters and high-end prints will be printed from selected original artwork. Posters and prints will be available for purchase during the 2018-19 Basketball Season. Proceeds from sales support the UD Champions and Scholars Fund, a fund that provides and enhances opportunities for more than 400 University of Dayton student-athletes on 17 athletic teams.
This project provides original artwork to the large and passionate UD basketball fan base while supporting artists and introducing their work to a new collectors’ market. The artwork depicts the breadth of the community’s interests in subjects from the UD bandleader, to game announcers and basketball players.
