Arlington Arts Center – Call for Artists

OPEN CALL: SUBMIT YOUR PROPOSAL TO PARTICIPATE IN SOLOS AT ARLINGTON ARTS CENTER

The exhibitions program at AAC supports the work of emerging contemporary artists in the Mid-Atlantic region through our SOLOS exhibitions.

Exhibition proposals are reviewed by jurors who then make recommemndations on exhibitions for inclusion in SOLOS. This year’s jurors are Melissa Ho, Assistant Curator, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and Chicago-based artist Jefferson Pinder. Selected artists, hailing from DC, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia, are then featured in a SOLOS exhibition.

WHAT ARE THE SOLOS?

Each year, artists from across the Mid-Atlantic region are selected for solo exhibitions to take place in one of AAC’s seven separate gallery spaces, or outside on the grounds resulting in an exceptional suite of cutting-edge exhibitions featuring art in variety of media. Proposals that specifically take into account AAC’s space, layout, and surrounding environs are encouraged.
