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.

Suggested Timeline

  • From the date of submission, allow up to one week for the review of your application.
  • If Facilities Services needs to be involved in the installation of your work, be ready to share final plans with the Art Committee, who will liaise with Facilities, at least two weeks before the start date of the exhibition.
  • Plan for the exhibit to be displayed in the library for three to four weeks (recommended).
  • Confirm a plan to pick up your work by the end date. After that time, your exhibit will become the property of the library and may be disposed of.


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.

Labels and Items for Sale

You will need to provide labels of each work, including your name, the title of the work, year, and medium.

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.

Exhibiting Work during Summer or Winter Break

Work may be displayed when classes are not in session, as long as it is removed by the date agreed upon.
