ViSArts 2017 Emerging Curator Call

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, December 1, 2016

Application Deadline: December 12, 2016

VisArts invites applications from emerging curators to work with an experienced mentoring curator to develop and present an exhibition.

The VisArts Emerging Curator Program offers a unique opportunity for an emerging curator to work with an experienced mentoring curator to develop and present an exhibition and to assist in the presentation of the mentor’s exhibition. In an effort to develop expanded education programming/enhanced visitor experiences, the 2017 Emerging Curator and the Mentoring Curator will also focus on developing tools, templates, technological enhancements and funding strategies to support public programming that promotes social interaction, creative exchange and audience engagement.

VisArts will provide the Emerging Curator with an exhibition budget of $10,000. Additional funding and staff support for printing, promotions, and execution of exhibition programming is available. The program is one year and will begin in January 2017.

The selection panel includes the VisArts’ Curator, Artist Advisory Council, Gallery Committee and 2017 Mentoring Curator.
