Artist Opportunities

Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP)

The Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP) is an open-call curatorial platform that investigates contemporary culture through the visual arts. It makes possible diverse curatorial visions in a collaborative, non-profit and alternative exhibition space. Curators of selected group exhibitions receive a $1,000 stipend and administrative, promotional and technical support.

We host exhibitions involving two or more artists and incorporating at least one public presentation in our 2,000 square-foot gallery.

The New Art Center has a 35-year tradition of using its Main Gallery for group exhibitions curated by an independent curator. Since May 1991, we have continued this tradition through our Curatorial Opportunity Program’s public call for proposals.

  • Check back in early 2016 for next year's call.
