Exhibits: Exhibition Proposals
The college exhibitions program invites faculty to consider developing exhibitions of art and/or objects as an enrichment of their teaching and scholarly interests. Guided by the Exhibitions Coordinator, the John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities' Staff will work closely with faculty to mount exhibitions that make best use of the college's spaces, collections, and other resources to extend cultural literacy through the display of visual and material items. Beyond use of Haverford's own collections, we invite proposals for traveling exhibitions, single and group artist shows, as well as visiting curators.
Faculty interested in sponsoring or curating an exhibit are encouraged to work with Matthew Callinan, Exhibitions Coordinator, (firstname.lastname@example.org) to develop their proposals.
Proposals should include and/or address to the extent possible the following:
- Proposal Statement/Cover Letter (including mention of audience, curricular links, and any ideas for supplementary programming such as gallery talks/lectures)
- Artist(s) Resumé(s) and/or exhibition information from lending institution(s)
- Illustrative samples of images/objects (digital format required)
- How do you envision students interacting with the exhibit beyond the opening reception? What related programming (talks, screenings, workshops, creative projects) will be attached to the exhibit?
- List other faculty members (both in and outside of your department) willing to include this exhibition in their curricula.
- List of potential materials (including quantity, media, size, and readiness to display/hang)
- Owner(s) of materials and obligations regarding safety and security measures as well as replacement values
- Exhibition dates in relation to the Academic Calendar and availability of exhibition space(s)
- Estimated costs of loan, insurance, publicity, shipment, mounting supplies (including signage/labels and display/hanging materials), additional installation assistance, additional print materials (gallery handouts, catalogue, programs), opening reception, and related programming (including honoraria, travel, lodging, meals, and materials)
- Individuals, departments, and/or organizations offering programmatic and/or financial support (if support is financial, a rough estimate of available funds should be provided)
Deadlines: Proposals for Stokes 102 will be reviewed on a revolving basis. Proposals received later will be reviewed on a revolving basis. For Cantor Fitzgerald, please be in contact with Matthew Callinan, Exhibitions Coordinator (email@example.com), as soon as possible.
