BCAC Call for Exhibition & Program Proposals
Broome County Arts Council (BCAC) is planning gallery exhibitions and programs for 2018. BCAC invites fine artists and cultural curators who live and work in Broome County to submit proposals for gallery exhibitions and programs for consideration by BCAC’s Program and Marketing Committee. Proposals are invited from visual artists, poets and writers, musicians, and performing artists, as well as curators of cultural programs with local significance. Emerging artists are welcome to submit proposals. Priority will be given to BCAC members but ALL submissions will be considered. BCAC will review proposals on a rolling basis.
