Proposals

The de Saisset Museum welcomes artists, curators, individuals, and organizations to submit proposals for consideration for future exhibitions. Proposals may pertain to a specific exhibition idea or may seek consideration for inclusion in a future group show. Proposals are reviewed by de Saisset Museum staff once annually between June and August. After a decision has been made, the person responsible for submitting the proposal will be notified of the staff's decision.
