Speaking of contests, the Applied Statistics Center at Columbia University is holding their first annual art contest.
They’re looking for art work that has anything to do with statistics. It can be a visualization or a representation of a mathematical concept. It’s all pretty open. You just have to be creative. The winner gets a little bit of extra cash and your winning piece will be on the front of the Applied Statistics Center brochure.
Get your submissions in soon. The deadline is March 31.
As I said on the “Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science” blog, it’s unfortunate that this art contest has a flyer that so artlessly obscures the text (black on black).
I hope the submissions they receive are better than the poster!
a perfect reason to have a contest recruiting artists
Thanks for the mention. And, yeah, to the commenters above, we’re not artists; that’s why we’re doing the competition! I think we’re good judges of art, though, so if you can do better, please submit something!
