Starving Artist Organization

Purpose:  The Starving Artist Organization (SAO) signs all kind of artists (musicians, photographers, painters, etc) and we help them get their work out and be seen. We advertise around campus getting artist interested in signed with SAO. The purpose of the organization is to have students showcase their talents and share them with the world (almost like signing to a record label, except not with a hard contract, and SAO is not just for musicians). SAO puts on events for their artists, one night may be an art gallery, where we have pieces from some of our painters, drawers, etc., another may be a jazz concert… where some of our jazz musicians perform. We also have a website where we have photos and biographies of all of the artists signed to the organization, we show when the next events are/what kind of event it is/who is being showcased that day, video footage and pictures of the performers or artwork from the most recent events, etc. One of the most unique aspects of SAO is that we allow the students who are not artists (the SAO workers) to truly practice their crafts. Whether they enjoy PR, advertising, website editing, website creation, fundraising, financial management, talent scouting, equipment managing, stage managing, location planning, etc., we have it all… so much goes into putting on events and concerts. SAO will have 2 large concerts, one in the Fall Semester, and one in the Spring Semester… these will be concerts where we have a line up of artists that we know students really want to listen to.

Membership Criteria:  All student members must be full time undergraduate students. Student members will be split into two categories, talent and working committee.

The talent member group will consist of all the artists that are members of SAO. To become a member, artists must submit a short video of their work to SAO’s talent searchers. Artists who do not display their work through live performance (photographers, painters, etc.) must send in photos of their work. For artists who do not know how their artistry can be shown, they can contact the organization via email. After all work is reviewed, the artist will be notified if they have been accepted into the organization or denied. By auditioning for membership, all applicants agree to become members if accepted into SAO.

The working committee will consist of students who wish to fulfill positions designated by the council. Applicants must submit a short application that displays the applicant’s major, talents, specialties, and what position they are interested in. The council will approve or deny applicants based on their credentials.
