The Somerville Museum is pleased to announce the annual call for Community Curators. This program is open to everyone: artists, historians, collectors, curators, students, etc., and all are encouraged to apply. Proposal ideas can be on any topic but the most successful applications include some combination of history, art, and culture. Chosen applications will recieve a seed grant of $2,500 towards exhibition costs.
The Somerville Museum is the City of Somerville’s mirror, playing a central role in preserving the past, reflecting the present, and helping to shape the future of this diverse urban community. Through its innovative programming, the Museum seeks to engage our audience in an on-going dialogue with local artists, scholars, and educators, with the larger aim of fostering cultural education and understanding.
The Museum welcomes proposals from those with extensive resumes as well as those with little experience yet ample vision. We encourage applicants to visit both the Museum and its website in order to learn more about the Museum’s wide-ranging exhibition history. Strong proposals should be clear and concise, presenting innovative and engaging ideas, along with an active programming agenda that will attract a diverse group of participants and visitors.
This information session will review the application process and expectations along with a view of the current Community Curator exhibition, Sanctuary City by Julia Csekö.
