City Center Gallery

OSU Urban Arts Space
June 19, 2012 – July 17, 2012

Founded to serve as a facilitator for independent local art, City Center Gallery recognizes and assists emerging Columbus artists who are forging innovative careers and expanding conceptual practices. City Center Gallery welcomes exhibition proposals from emerging greater Columbus area artists or groups in any discipline.

City Center Gallery at the OSU Urban Arts Space is an opportunity for emerging artists to display their art and launch their careers. Operated and juried entirely by OSU students from arts and non-arts disciplines, City Center Gallery grants funding to selected artists or artist groups and presents a month-long exhibition located in the corridor space at the entrance of the OSU Urban Arts Space. Artists who display in City Center Gallery will have the unique opportunity to exhibit work in a professional setting and gain real-world knowledge in the operations of galleries. By assisting artists in the Columbus community, the OSU Urban Arts Space hopes to create a new artistic destination for both artists and residents of Columbus, Ohio.

Any greater Columbus area artist or artist group can submit his/her concept and artwork during open application periods. All mediums of art are eligible; these include, but are not limited to, visual, performing, literary, and cinematic arts. Selected artists will receive a need-based grant of up to $500 to fund the proposed exhibition. In addition, student staff members will work with the artists throughout the preparation and duration of the exhibition. These efforts include exhibition layout, installation and promotions, among others. Artists will be notified no less than sixty days before the proposed exhibition date and will be allotted three days to install, one month to exhibit, and one day to strike.

Individual artists are limited to one accepted proposal per year; however, individual artists are permitted to exhibit in a collaborative or group exhibition for a total of two accepted proposals per year. There is no limitation on the amount of proposals an individual may submit. Multiple proposals in one voting period are welcome. Applications are considered on a six-month rolling basis period, after which the applicant will be notified of a final decision.
