Juneau-Douglas City Museum accepting applications from artists

Juneau-Douglas City Museum is seeking proposals from artists or arts groups who are interested in mounting a show during the 2016-2017 season, with a deadline for receipt of applications on Oct. 31.

The Museum encourages a variety of exhibition ideas and will consider artists working in all media. Successful candidates will present work that compliments the Museum’s mission: ”To foster among its diverse audiences an awareness of Juneau’s cultural heritage, values and community memory so we may draw strength and perspective from the past, inspire learning and find purpose for the future.”

Artists selected to display their work at the museum after submitting proposals last October are ceramicist Jeremy Kane, painter Avery Skaggs and poets Aleria Jensen and Jonas Lamb.

Artists selected for the 2016-2017 season must be prepared to hang the exhibit, produce labels and supply posters and invitation postcards for promotion of their show. Artwork may be for sale, with a percentage of the sales being paid to the Museum as a guest fee.

Application forms can be picked up at the Museum or can be found online at: www.juneau.org/museum. Click on “Exhibit Opportunities” under the “Exhibits” tab.

For more information about applying or about the Museum visit: www.juneau.org/museum or call 586-3572. The Juneau-Douglas City Museum is located at 4th & Main Streets. Fall/Winter hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is free during the month of October thanks to the Pioneers of Alaska Men’s & Women’s Igloo #6.
