Exhibition Proposal Guidelines

Exhibition Proposal Guidelines

Proposal Submission Process

The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) is always interested in receiving exhibition proposals from artists. The mission of the IMAS is to create an environment that inspires, educates and entertains the public through the arts and sciences. We encourage submissions from artists who have mastered their art media and have past exhibition experience. Artists creating new work, site-specific installations or a special project for exhibition are strongly encouraged to apply. The IMAS will not accept a proposal for work that has already been shown within 120 miles of McAllen during a period of 18 months preceding the opening date or will be shown within 120 miles of McAllen within six months after the closing at the museum.

The IMAS accepts exhibition proposals throughout the year. All proposals must adhere to the guidelines below. We will respond to you as soon as your review is complete. Please allow six months for the review process and include an SASE if you would like physical materials returned.

Artists, groups and collection representatives interested in proposing an exhibition should submit:

  • Cover letter with a one (1) page project description
  • Resume or CV of artist/s detailing artistic training and previous exhibitions
  • Selection of 25 images (digital files, CD/DVD, prints, etc.) with title, medium, dimensions and date of each work. *Please do not send original materials.
  • Estimated budget
  • Space requirements
