WMA is dedicated to presenting innovative exhibitions by the finest regional, national, and international artists. We ask that prior to submitting your work you consider our mission and programming in order to determine whether your submission is appropriate to our Museum.
Proposals may include ideas for exhibitions, performances, public art and site-specific projects, new media, or projects that require temporary residency. Artists from Alabama and the Southeast will receive priority consideration, although artists from all locations, and any stage of their career may be considered.
Exhibitions are scheduled approximately 18-24 months in advance and are carefully balanced to present our viewers with a varied artistic program; some exceptions may apply. A confirmation notification will be sent when all proposal materials are received. Submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis. Due to the anticipation of a large number of submissions, WMA will only notify you if they are able to pursue your project. Museum staff may require additional information during the review process, and will reach out for clarifications and next steps.
Submissions are only accepted through this online process. Do not send unique or valued materials by mail as they will not be returned or reviewed. While we are happy to review your work, doing so does not constitute a promise to exhibit your work. We cannot accept actual works of art. WMA cannot be held responsible for submitted material.
If you have any questions, please email Robin Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org
