Exhibit Your Work

At SAIC, we feel that exhibiting work is a vital part of an arts education. The exhibition opportunities that we facilitate provide a forum for the development and exchange of ideas among students, faculty, staff, and visiting artists and curators. Proposals may be submitted for a variety of projects including—but not limited to—object-based and nonobject forms of artmaking such as: events, symposia, 2D and 3D work, and time-based media such as film, video, web art and design, and performance.

These opportunities include:

Course-related Exhibitions at the Sullivan Galleries
(for faculty only)


312.629.6635

Gallery hours: Tuesday–Saturday, 11:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.

For additional information, please email: Trevor Martin, Director of Exhibitions, at tmartin@saic.edu.

Call for Proposals for Course-related Exhibitions

Deadline: Monday, October 20, 5:00 p.m.

Course-related exhibitions can operate as an integrated part of the teaching process, a culminating exercise or a presentation that can be developed further subsequent to the end of a semester. Exhibitions can occur on campus or off campus. Course-related exhibition proposals are evaluated by several committees (as cited below) according to quality, resources, feasibility of timing, the number of course-related proposals received in a given academic year, benefit to the participating students and wider community, and contribution to the exhibitions program of SAIC. Thus, not all course-related exhibition proposals may be successful. A course-related proposal may be submitted more than once. However, instructors should expect that once a proposal is accepted and realized as an exhibition, it may not be possible to do this same course show over consecutive years, thus making it necessary to rotate off the exhibition calendar for a year or more.

Course-related exhibition proposals are reviewed as in the following order prior to posting courses with an exhibition reference for enrollment:

  1. Department Chair approval
  2. Course approval from Curriculum Committee (includes review by Dean of Faculty)
  3. These committees submit their recommendations to the Dean of Faculty who makes final decision for course-related exhibition proposals

Complete this form and submit to Exhibitions & Exhibition Studies Committee for review: Course-related Exhibitions [PDF].
