NOVA 2018

From Abated Light to sudden brilliance, When stars unheard make themselves known. This is the flare, this is the Nova.

The Engineering Art Show is proud to announce this year’s theme is Nova 2018 March 12 -29th. There is a duality in this theme’s meaning. From its Latin roots, ‘nova’ conveys newness while its astronomical meaning is a bright star previously unknown. Through the show, we hope to provide an avenue for you to share something new – to make known the creative side of you…


Thank you to the artists that submitted art for Nova 2018! Your art will be on display from March 12th-29th during the day. Art pick-up will take place at the end of the Closing Reception on March 29th (please see below).
