Artist Proposal Guidelines


If you are interested in submitting your work for review, please follow these guidelines:

  • Visit the Museum and review catalogues to assess whether your work is appropriate for MCASD's program. If a visit is impossible, explore our Web site.
  • Submit one CD ROM, DVD, or Web site address along with a resume, a short statement, and/or cover letter as well as any other supporting materials (such as exhibition reviews). The CD-ROM or DVD should contain no more than 10 images, formatted at 300 dpi or lower for optimal viewing. If you would like your materials returned to you, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope with your submission. Please note that MCASD does not accept original work or models nor can the Museum be responsible for any materials that are sent.
  • MCASD asks that you submit documentation no larger than 8 x 11 inches. The Museum is unable to accommodate submissions that fall outside of these guidelines or solicitations made in-person, via e-mail, by fax, or by phone.

MCASD makes every effort to turn around submissions in a timely manner but review may take 6 months or more. If your work is appropriate for a future exhibition, your materials may be retained for consideration. Thank you for respecting these guidelines and making it easy for the Curatorial staff to review as much work as possible.
