Rowan University Art Gallery

Curators’ Showcase Program
Westby Hall
Glassboro, NJ

The Curators' Showcase Program is currently reviewing proposals for the 2010/2011 exhibition season. Exhibitions will focus on the theme of The Body. Proposals that explore this theme are due February 1, 2010. Other themes are welcome and are reviewed on an on-going basis.

Rowan University Art Gallery encourages the development of exhibitions that will enrich the educational experience of our students and broaden awareness and appreciation of contemporary art.

We accept and review proposals from curators, artists, and art historians for exhibitions that explore themes that are culturally relevant, artistically unique, and highlight new processes and practices in the visual arts. We are especially interested in proposals that are multi-disciplinary, but all media will be considered.

Our facility allows us to present comprehensive exhibitions and permits related programming, such as lectures, artists’ talks, student workshops, and symposia.

Selected proposals will be developed into exhibitions, which are typically on view for approximately six weeks. A color brochure with an essay by the curator will be published for each exhibition.

To submit a written proposal, please include:
• One to two typewritten pages outlining the premise of the exhibition, why it is relevant, and the artists you propose to include in the exhibition.
• Visuals of the artists’ work, if appropriate. These need not be the actual works for the exhibition, but should be illustrative of the work to be included.
• Any other collateral information that may be helpful for our understanding of your proposal.
• A sample of your writing.
• A copy of your résumé or CV, including your contact information and email address.

Floor plans and images of the gallery are available by contacting Mary Salvante, Gallery and Exhibitions Program Director, at

Proposals and sample images should be submitted on a CD.

Curator Stipend $2,000
