Visit our Submission Guidelines page for specific requirements and preferred formatting. Send all completed proposals to umkcgallery@umkc.edu

Exhibition proposals
UMKC Gallery of Art offers emerging artists the opportunity to exhibit their work in a supportive environment that challenges their artistic development and offers exposure to new audiences. We are particularly interested in new artists working across a variety of mediums, with highly conceptual and well-crafted work. Proposals for solo and group exhibitions will be considered for 4-6 week exhibitions.

Curatorial proposals
Curators committed to developing and expanding their practice are invited to submit proposals for a gallery exhibition. Proposals from curators should include work from artists that contributes to contemporary dialogues in art and pushes the concept of curator in new and interesting directions.

Special Events
UMKC Gallery of Art is often able to offer space and guidance to individuals and organizations that share our values to organize music, film, and performance events.
