Guidelines for General Submissions

"The Sioux City Art Center will consider exhibition proposals on an on-going basis, and actively encourages artists to send proposals and portfolios for review. The Art Center’s ongoing exhibition schedule consists primarily of a combination of artists in or near the Sioux City area and major artists from the Upper Midwest. Additional opportunities for artists outside of these two primary descriptions come via the annual outdoor art festival, ArtSplash, and the Art Center’s biennial juried exhibition. Please include the following materials:

  • 15–20 images, clearly identified with artist, title, date, media, and dimensions or accompanied by a list containing this information (Preferred image formats are PC-formatted CDs or DVDs; electronic submissions are also welcome privded the attachments are properly sized for emails. If proposal is for a site-specific work, please provide examples of similar past work and any other materials that would help visualize the finished piece.)
    Note: Do not send original works
  • Statement explaining the work proposed for the Art Center. Be as specific as possible about the ideas behind the work, the reasons for the chosen medium/materials, and the intended visual impact of the work.
  • Current resume or CV, including exhibition history
  • Contact information (include email)
  • Please send proposals to:
Sioux City Art Center
Attn: Todd Behrens, Curator
225 Nebraska Street
Sioux City, Iowa 51101-1712

Unsolicited proposals will only be answered if the Art Center is interested in programming the proposed exhibition. Return of materials is possible only if the artist includes a self-addressed stamped envelope with the proposal.
