Every year, the Juneau-Douglas City Museum hosts solo and group art exhibits from November through February. During 2016-17, the Museum exhibited work by local artists Barbara Craver, Gordon Harrison, Jonas Lamb and Aleria Jensen, visiting artist Pol Corvez, and work from the Alaska State Parks Gruening Cabin Artist-in-Residence program. The Museum is currently seeking new proposals from artists or groups who are interested in mounting a show during the 2018-19 season. The deadline for applications is August 31, 2017.
The Museum encourages a variety of exhibition ideas and will consider artists working in all media. Successful candidates will present work that complements the Museumís mission: To foster an awareness of Juneauís cultural heritage, values, and community memory to draw strength and perspective from the past, inspire learning, and find purpose for the future.
Applications must include a completed application form, which can be picked up at the Museum or downloaded below. 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 should read the application form carefully for more details on the required submissions.
Artists selected must be prepared to hang the exhibit, produce labels and supply posters and invitation postcards for promotion of their show. For more information, contact Kaia Henrickson, Public Programs Coordinator, at email@example.com or 586-0966.
