Exhibit: Artist Curation Project

2024 Artist Curation Project

Request for Proposal Form

The Arts Council wants to see how YOU would curate the Bower-Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery. The Artist Curation Project is an opportunity to submit a proposal of 3-5 artists who you think would be phenomenal together on the wall. Three small groups of artists will be chosen by a committee; a group for each wall. All media will be considered; pedestals will be available for 3D work.

How it works

One lead curator will organize a small group of artists (3-5), and curate their artwork into a cohesive exhibit on one wall of the Bower-Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery. The curator should not be one of the artists. The curator will choose a title, a theme, and the artwork for the exhibit. The curator will also install the exhibit.
