The 2019 AUC Student Arts Festival will take place in the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library's Virginia Lacy Jones Exhibition Hall. The theme for this year is The Black Fantastic. Submitted art should answer the question: "What does the future of Black Culture look like?"

Showcase your alternative realities or imagined futures! Consider Afrofuturism/Africanfuturism, Southern Hip-Hop, Black Comics, Sword and Soul, Steamfunk, and Black Horror as inspiration for your art. 

The top three overall winners will receive High museum passes, a chance to have their art displayed in the Library and:

—First Place: Apple Watch

—Second Place: Apple Air Pods

—Beats By Dre Wireless Headphones
