Art Exhibit Policy & Application: Further Details

Information For Accepted Exhibits

Once your application has been accepted, a member of the Art Committee will arrange to walk with you through the space(s) indicated in your application, coordinating schedules and the details of display.

Timeline

  • From the date of submission, allow up to one week for the review of your application.
  • Two weeks before the start date of the exhibit, submit artwork and plans to Facilities Services.
  • Plan for the exhibit to be displayed in the Library for three to four weeks.
  • Two weeks prior to the end date of the exhibition, coordinate with the Art Committee. If the work has not been picked up by the end of the two-week period after the exhibition is taken down, it will become the property of the library, and will be disposed of.

Exhibit Periods

Work may be displayed through periods when classes are not in session, as long as it is removed by the date agreed upon. No works of art may be removed during the exhibit period.

Labels and Items for Sale

You will need to provide labels of each work, including your name, the title of the work, year, and media. These labels will be subject to the approval of the Art Committee.

Exhibits may contain items that are for sale. Sale prices will not be displayed, but labels may indicate that items are for sale and may provide contact information of the artist.

Security

Watzek Library will not be responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged materials. Artists showing their work must sign a liability waiver (part of the application). With the exhibitor's approval, security precautions will be taken when possible, and may include the use of anti-theft devices
