The John D. MacArthur Campus Library Gallery of Florida Atlantic University is seeking exhibition proposals for the 2010-2011 season. All mediums (except performance) are accepted. Solo or two person exhibition proposals are being considered. Shows run for 2.5-3 months. This is an alternative space, so please review the information below before submitting your work.

The carpet is slate blue with square print.

The work has to hang from a rod system. No holes in the walls. 2d work must be wired.

Artists are responsible for shipping to and from the gallery, plus any insurance while on display. The library does not provide insurance, however we take great care in protecting the works while in our custody. You MUST include return shipping with the work.
