The Museum seeks proposals that focus on innovative work by artists of outstanding potential and established artists who have international, national or regional reputations. Proposals may be for thematic or solo shows. Curators should have a track record of creating exhibitions in the fields of contemporary art, craft, and design; however, the Museum will also accept for review proposals from emerging curators developing their careers. Curators may not include their own work in the proposed exhibition. Additionally, the exhibition should not have been on view within 50 miles of the Museum’s location.
Ideally, proposals should be submitted one to two years in advance of the proposed exhibition; however, shorter lead times will be considered and in some cases desired. Please do not send original art or documents, as materials will not be returned. The Museum will contact curators of interest for an in-person discussion with the Museum’s Exhibitions Committee to determine whether the proposal is feasible.
We are particularly interested in hearing from curators in the New Jersey/New York/Pennsylvania area. (Curators, please note that the Museum is 55 miles from New York City and 60 miles from Philadelphia. Public transportation is available from New York City from Port Authority. There is no direct public transportation from Philadelphia to Clinton. By car, the Museum is easily accessible from Route 78.)
Proposals may be sent to:
