Submitted by VisArts on Thu, 11/02/2017 - 12:28pm


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 2018 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 2018. Application Deadline is December 15, 2017, midnight.
The selection panel includes the VisArts’ Curator, Artist Advisory Council, Gallery Committee and 2018 Mentoring Curator.
