Submissions for Exhibits & Programs

Submit Your Ideas for an Exhibition or Program

The following is a list of what must be included in your proposal: • Cover letter: Brief, succinct, indicating that this is a proposal to be considered for exhibition. Introduce the artist(s), the artwork, the proposal, and how it fits with the venue’s mission statement, including relevant ties to the venue (local/regional/national). • Theme or description of work (the artist’s intent for the exhibit) • Proposed dates exhibit is available • Contact info (phone, address, email) • CV, resume, and/or bio, whichever the venue has specified • Artist statement (if artist) • Images (Three images per proposal) representative of your proposed exhibition. Images should be in digital format with a resolution of 300dpi. Images must be numbered and labeled. The professional manner in which the work is presented is extremely valuable in assessing each proposal. • Educational elements of the exhibit, and/or whether the artist is available for workshops, classes, or lectures. • Information addressing any financial concerns. Will you need funding? Are you applying for grants? Do you have sponsorship?

We encourage a variety of exhibition types. All media will be considered. If you wish, you may complement your show with a lecture and/or multimedia presentation. Exhibitor’s funding responsibilities must be secured before submitting the proposal. If exhibition material varies significantly from images used in the exhibition proposal, staff reserves the right to cancel the exhibition. PGAAMCC staff will review all submitted proposals. If your proposal is deemed to uphold the mission of the Prince George’s African American Museum and Cultural Center, staff will contact you.

Unannounced visits and unsolicited phone calls are strongly discouraged.
