Artists interested in applying to be featured in our Emerging Artists program should attend this informational meeting. We will hold two information sessions to review the application process, tour the gallery and answer any questions applicants may have. These sessions will be held on May 30 and June 19 at 6pm in the MoAD Salon.
Over the last three years, through the Emerging Artists Program, MoAD has provided California artists the opportunities to generate and exhibit works reflecting the cultural and artistic richness of the African Diaspora in a dynamic gallery setting.
Competitive proposals will present innovative artworks to activate the Salon, a multipurpose space in the heart of the museum where we hold public programs, education workshops, and events.
Four final artists and/or collectives will be chosen to participate in the Emerging Artists Program. Each selected artist or group will have a 6-week long exhibition in addition to a 2 hour long celebratory opening reception, which includes an artist talk.
Selected artists will be announced to the public in August 2018.

All applicants will be notified by July 27, 2018, of the status of their application. EAP finalists will be notified of their exhibition dates and will have approximately one week to confirm participation. Then, artists will then work with the exhibitions team at the museum to finalize and prepare work.
