The Bowdoin Art Society is pleased to announce the inaugural issue of an undergraduate journal for art historical research, the Bowdoin Journal of Art.  It is the only American academic art publication that features the work of undergraduates.  The Journal examines themes of traditional and contemporary art practice.

Five winners of the competition are awarded $200 each.   The exhibition occupies the upward circular ramp in Smith Union (in a manner similar to the Guggenheim Museum in NYC) and the Lemarge Gallery.
