The Department of Art & Design at the University of Minnesota Duluth offers this annual juried event at the Tweed Museum of Art.

This year’s jurors are Dan Clark and George Slade, who will announce the winners at the Award Ceremony and reception at the Museum on Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 4 to 6 pm. The event is free and open to the public. Both jurors will offer a lecture for the Visual Culture Lecture Series on April 10, 2018 at 6 pm, Montague Hall 70, at the University of Minnesota Duluth campus.



Don Clark is an artist and cofounder of Invisible Creature, a widely respected and award-winning design studio based in Seattle, Washington. Don formed Invisible Creature in early 2006 with his brother Ryan. Together they have worked with clients such as Target, LEGO, Wired Magazine, Nike, Adobe, XBox, The New York Times, Foo Fighters, Kendrick Lamar and more. In 2008, Invisible Creature received their fourth consecutive Grammy nomination for packaging design. Invisible Creature also designs and curates their own line of products for both children and adults alike. Their products can be found in stores such as Barneys New York, Walker Art Center, Nordstrom, SF MOMA, Super7, Whole Foods & more. Don’s love for mid-century design and illustration lays the groundwork for Invisible Creature’s aesthetic, although his range reaches far beyond any one, specific style. He lives with his wife and their 3 children on a ranch 30 minutes southeast of Seattle.

He has served in curator and director roles for Minnesota Museum of American Art, Mia (aka the Minneapolis Institute of Art), Minnesota Center for Photography, and the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University. He was the director of the McKnight Foundation Artist Fellowships for Photographers program for ten years. He has lectured and been invited to take part in portfolio reviews at art institutions internationally. His writings appear on-line and in print; he has written essays for numerous artist monographs and periodicals.
