Design Competition

Makerspaces are fun and innovative places that inspire creativity, open-mindedness, and the entrepreneurial spirit! Lange Innovation Lounge will be a multidisciplinary room filled with prototyping and creativity tools to provide students of all backgrounds the means to explore their innovating ambitions. Because the lounge is a space designed by students for students, we are asking our community how you would design and paint our newest makerspace by answering this question: What does innovation mean to you?


Entry Information

  • This competition is open to current Loyola undergraduate students.
  • Submissions can be made in any art medium - digital, canvas, photography, sculpture. Even rough drafts of designs will be accepted - we will work with the artist to further the winning design if it shows potential.
