SPECIAL PROGRAMMING PROPOSALS

 

PROPOSAL SUBMISSIONS ARE ACCEPTED YEAR-ROUND

 

(SCENE) Metrospace is located in downtown East Lansing, Michigan and is operated by the Department of Art, Art History, and Design at Michigan State University. Since 2004, (SCENE) Metrospace has maintained a diverse range of regionally focused visual art exhibitions featuring nationally recognized artists, emerging artists, juried and group exhibitions, musical performances, and other forms of expression. The space provides just over 1,500 square feet for exhibitions and special programming and welcomes proposals that challenge our ways of thinking about the visual and performing arts.

 

(SCENE) Metrospace is always seeking proposals for works and special programming that address contemporary issues and concerns, and/ or work that pushes traditional boundaries in its treatment of materials or subject. We offer juried calls for themed exhibitions throughout the year. Exhibitions are planned several months to a year in advance. Please keep this in mind when proposing shows.

 

The Department of Art, Art History, and Design accepts special programming proposals with the requirements listed below. All proposals must include the materials listed below. All complete proposals will be reviewed by a Department of Art, Art History, and Design Faculty committee. Applicants will be notified with questions and if a proposal has been accepted. Please note that at this time we cannot host events in the space that have a charged admission.

 

Please contact SCENE@msu.edu if you have any questions and to submit your completed proposal.
