Submitting an Exhibition Proposal

Sometimes artists send information about themselves to museums in hope of being considered for an exhibition. Whether or not the museum chooses to show work submitted without the request of the Curator depends on many factors, the most important being whether or not the work fits the style and standards of the museum. After that, time is considered. Most museums schedule their exhibitions two to four years ahead of time, so the artist who submits his or her portfolio will not usually get into a show until much later.

If you are an artist, and you are interested in being considered for an exhibition opportunity at Ogden Museum of Southern Art, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • We review exhibition proposals on a quarterly basis with our exhibitions committee. You will receive a letter after it has been reviewed.
  • If you plan to submit your work for consideration, please include in your packet a resume, artist statement, images of your work (digital images in .jpg or .tif format are acceptable), and a self addressed, stamped envelope if you would like your images returned.
  • The quality of your images does count! If your slides are dark or your CD is unreadable, the committee will not be able to see your work.
  • DO NOT SEND ORIGINAL ARTWORK! We cannot be held responsible for originals sent to us.
  • Submit your materials to: Ogden Museum of Southern Art, attn: Project Coordinator, 925 Camp Street, New Orleans, LA 70130
