The Pie Baking Contest
Grab your lucky oven mitt, because the competition is fierce this year! Graduate students may enter homemade pies in either or both of our two categories, SWEET and SAVORY. Only one entry per category, per student - that's a maximum of two pies per student. Store bought pies will be destroyed on sight. You don't have to have a pie to get in, but you're gonna need one to win!
Contest Registration takes place from 5:00-6:00pm. Submit your ready-to-be-tasted pies live and in-person to the registration table in Brown Center (downstairs by Falvey Hall) along with a completed Official Entry Form. Judging will begin promptly at 6:00 pm. No late entries accepted!!! *Please be ready to tell us if your pie is vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free*. Our well-groomed panel of judges will put it all on the line to sample and rate each of your creations. Prizes will be awarded for Best SWEET Pie, Best SAVORY Pie, and Prettiest Pie (Best Presentation).
The most coveted award - the Grand Champion Trophy- will go to the program that has the most and highest-ranking pies. This is calculated by number of entries in relation to program size, and the quality of the individual pies. That's right, participation counts! The winning program will display the Grand Champion Trophy in their program space for one year, earning a year's worth of bragging rights. So put on your ugliest holiday sweater and get ready to party! Pizza pies and beverages will be served.
Print your contest entry form or pick one up from the Grad Office.

Exhibitions Workshop: the Work of William Christenberry
Decker Gallery, Fox Building, 1st Floor
In conjunction with the installation of Laying-by Time: Revisiting the Works of William A Christenberry, the Office of Exhibitions presents a student-only, hands-on workshop that literally unpacks William Christenberry. Curator Kimberly Graham, Curator-in-Residence George Ciscle, and Director of Exhibitions Gerald Ross will lead the workshop and discussion which will enable students to engage in an intimate experience both in unpacking and placing these charged objects and in a conversation of Christenberry's vision.
Christenberry grew up in Hale County, Alabama where he studied art and documented his surroundings. As you might imagine, life in a post-civil war Deep South was a time of danger, poverty, and an unprecedented struggle for civil rights for African-American citizens. Christenberry's artistic practice is embedded in that struggle and delivers a complex and personal narrative about his home and the tension still being reconciled with in this country today.
Seating is very limited. Please follow the link below to register:
