Artist Opportunities

Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP)

The New Art Center is excited to announce the 2014-2015 Curatorial Opportunity Program Selections.

The Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP) accepts applications for group show proposals.

Next Deadline: Spring, 2015

The Curatorial Opportunity Program investigates contemporary culture through the visual arts.  It makes possible diverse curatorial visions in a non-profit and alternative exhibition space.

The COP enables first-time or established curators, including artist-curators, to explore experimental approaches in the presentation of contemporary art.  Curators of selected group exhibitions receive a $1,000 stipend and administrative, promotional and technical support.

The NAC has a 35-year tradition of using its Main Gallery for group exhibitions curated by an exhibiting artist or independent curator.  Since May 1991 we have continued this tradition through a public call for proposals.
