Established in 1978, the Wind Challenge Exhibition Series is an annual juried competition that is committed to enriching and expanding people’s lives through art. Wind Challenge Exhibitions are held from September through May, featuring the work of exceptional artists living in the Philadelphia region.

The Wind Challenge Exhibition Series is made possible with thanks to generous support from the Wind Foundation and Fleisher members.

Since its inception, the series has introduced regional contemporary art from over three hundred artists to a broad audience and has helped emerging artists advance their professional careers. Past Wind Challenge artists include photographer Robert Asman and sculptor Syd Carpenter, both of whom were later awarded a Pew Fellowship in the Arts; beloved Fleisher teaching artist Charlotte Yudis; and brothers Billy and Stephen Dufala, winners of the 2009 West Prize. In 2011, a series of free-public programs led by the artists was introduced, designed to enhance the viewing experience for youth and adults.

The Stamp Gallery at the University of Maryland seeks artwork by artists related to HIV and AIDS.

This fall, Stamp Gallery will be exhibiting panels from the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, last hosted in the gallery 30 years ago. In the interceding years and despite many technological and medical advances, HIV/AIDS is still an epidemic that disproportionately impacts the dispossessed and marginalized. Politics still tie into policies and funding on preventative drugs, a major barrier to ending the epidemic. Much has changed since the 1980s, but what still remains?

Selected artwork will be exhibited in the Stamp Gallery in the Adele H. Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park.

Applicants must submit:

  • Artist’s Statement about specific works being submitted

  • Link to artist’s website (if applicable)

  • Proposed works with title and short description (up to 200 words), year of production, and medium)

  • 5-10 images/files (JPEG 72 dpi), video/audio clips should be shared as a link to a streaming site (with password information as necessary)



The Stamp Gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary art with an emphasis on the work of emerging and mid-career artists. The gallery supports contemporary art that is challenging and/or academically engaging and that addresses broad community and social issues. The gallery serves by providing exhibitions of social responsibility and artistic substance, as well as by offering an educational forum in which dialogue between artist and viewer and art and community is encouraged.

The Stamp Gallery is located on the first floor of the Stamp Student Union (1220 Stamp Student Union, The Adele H. Stamp Student Union – Center for Campus Life, University of Maryland College Park, 20742). 301-314-8492,
