After a very successful inaugural call for exhibition proposals last year, Pollak Library, once again, has opened the call to potential curators on campus and throughout Southern California.
Exhibitions this year have included a tribute to Leon Leyson, long-time Fullerton resident, Holocaust survivor, and the youngest member of the now famous Schindler’s List, as well as Earth Body: The Art of Sustainability, a public awareness program that focused on sustainability through art, poetry, cross-disciplinary books and a series of distinguished lectures and readings. Future exhibitions will feature the history of Orange County as told through photographs, student experimental films in response to 1920s and 1930s European avant-garde filmmakers, and underwater photographs that include marine life from both local cool water kept forests and warm water coral habitats—to name just a few.
If you’re interested in curating an exhibit in one of the many locations throughout the Library, consider submitting a proposal.
The call is open to students, faculty, staff, departments, as well as freelance curators and community organizations alike.
For additional information about the proposal process, please follow the link here. The deadline for submission is November 1, 2013, 5:00 p.m. Notification will be made by December 15, 2013.
For any and all specific questions, please contact Trish Campbell, the Exhibit Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
