City Museum seeks applications for artist exhibits

June 27, 2019 – News

The Juneau-Douglas City Museum is currently seeking proposals from artists or groups who are interested in mounting a show during the 2020-2021 season. The deadline for applications is August 31.

Every year, the City Museum exhibits solo and group art shows from November through February. During 2018-19, the City Museum exhibited work by local artists Crystal Cudworth, Alexandra Bookless, as well as a group show by the Plein Rein painters.

The City Museum encourages a variety of exhibition ideas and will consider artists working in all media. Successful candidates will present work that complements the Museum’s mission: “To foster among its diverse audiences an awareness of Juneau’s cultural heritage, values and community memory so we may draw strength and perspective from the past, inspire learning, and find purpose for the future.”

Applicants must submit a completed application form, which can be picked up at the City Museum or downloaded from the Museum’s website: juneau.org/library/museum (Click on “Exhibit Opportunities” under the “Exhibits and Collections” tab). Artists must submit five examples of past or current artwork representing the style 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 should read the application form carefully for more details on submission requirements. Artists selected must be prepared to hang the exhibit, produce labels and supply posters and invitation postcards for promotion of their show.
