Call for Exhibition Proposals

The annual call for exhibition proposals is an open submission process for artists and curators to present and produce curated exhibitions in collaboration with Pollak Library. Initially, two proposals will be selected for summer/fall 2015 (July - September and October - December) in the Salz-Pollak Atrium Gallery on the first floor. Additional proposals may be selected for exhibition in smaller venues throughout the library. Participation is open to campus and community artists, curators, faculty, staff, and students. A link to the current application and guidelines can be found below.

Submitted proposals are reviewed by the Pollak Library Exhibit Program Committee, composed of faculty and staff from Cal State Fullerton. Proposals are evaluated on feasibility, relevance, educational component, and merit. The program prioritizes collaborative proposals. Completed proposals should be sent to: libexhibits@fullerton.edu.

Earthquake/Building Renovation Impacts

Due to earthquake implications and the uncertainty of upcoming building renovations we may have to reschedule awarded exhibits at the curator's convenience. At this point, we are going ahead with this call because we think rescheduling is unlikely to happen in 2015; however, we wanted everyone to be aware of the possibility.
