You must construct your artwork on the Diag in an hour or less. Since a Liberal Arts education is all about making connections and putting things together, each team will be given a kit of connective/adhesive materials and an object to be incorporated in their project. Entries will be judged both on aesthetics and how well they address the theme. The top three teams will receive prizes and the entries will be displayed in The Michigan Union.
