To promote the arts at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and honor Helen Wessel, we have established the Wessel Project for the Arts to support the creation of artistic works, including paintings, drawings, photography, collage, graphic design, digital montage, creative meme-making, sculpture, music, composition, poetry, literature, and unconventional forms of art.
ERAU student artists are encouraged to apply for mini-grants and mentorship by clicking on the Call for Proposals here. You can find a printable Call for Proposals (PDF) here. All proposals will be considered by the Wessel committee. Those accepted will receive mini-grants, mentorship, acceptance to the Maverick Art Festival, and submission to the new online repository for the arts found below.
The repository allows ERAU students to preserve and share their proposals, artistic works, and artists’ statements. The work will be digitally and/or physically displayed during Arts & Letters events or other occasions, providing students an accessible outlet for their work.
Helen Wessel was an avid supporter of the arts, and her legacy lives on through artistic initiatives at the Daytona Beach campus. You can read more about Helen Wessel here. The Wessel Project for the Arts provides student artists a much-needed venue for creative expression. For more information, email email@example.com.
