Submitting an Art Exhibition Proposal
Fayetteville Public Library welcomes art exhibition proposals for display throughout the library. As an institution that values inclusivity and works to represent its community, we encourages artists with all levels of experience to apply.
Your proposal will be considered for display in any of our exhibition spaces: Reading Room, Adult Fiction, Adult Nonfiction, Lucky Day Gallery, Teen and Grade School hallway, McIlroy Entrance, and Bradberry Family Pre-function Gallery, among many other spaces throughout the library.
The Fayetteville Public Library Art Committee oversees public art planning and decision-making. This committee is made up of 8-10 individuals representing citizens, art professionals, art educators, and design professionals. At this time, the library is designed to exhibit two-dimensional, hanging artwork. Exhibitions that require installation will be considered and evaluated on facility feasibility along with artistic merit. Some of our policies to keep in mind when submitting:
+ The library does not assume responsibility for loss or damage to artwork(s) or the loss or damage to frames or glass, no matter how sustained. Reasonable safety and electronic security precautions are in place to ensure added protection. FPL strongly recommends that the artist carry personal property insurance.
+ The library does not handle sales, and pricing for artwork will not be displayed. Through publicity, the library will direct viewers interested in learning more to contact the artist or gallery representing the artist.
+ We welcome exhibition proposals at any time. You will receive a response within two months of submitting it.
+ We can’t wait to see your exhibition proposals! Please complete this form or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
No proposals will be accepted that contain material contradictory to FPL's Code of Conduct.
