The City Museum is requesting proposals from solo artists, or artist groups, who are interested in mounting a month-long exhibit at the City Museum during November-February of 2022-2023. The deadline for applications is August 31. From November through February each year, the City Museum provides gallery space for local solo artists (or groups of artists) to exhibit new works of art for one month. The City Museum encourages a variety of exhibition ideas and will consider artists working in all media.  Exhibitions include an opening reception at the City Museum and an opportunity for the artist(s) to present on their work to an audience.

Applicants must submit a completed application form, which can be picked up at the City Museum or downloaded from the City Museum’s website at juneau.org/museum. In addition, artists must submit five examples of past, or current artwork, representing the kind of work they plan to exhibit; an image list that corresponds with examples of work; a brief exhibit statement describing the proposed exhibition; and an artist resume. Artists selected must be prepared to hang the exhibit, produce labels, and promotion materials such as posters.
