The proposal must align with an element of the Morgan’s mission as stated below.
“Through teaching historical and innovative papermaking and the art of the book; and producing handmade papers – The Morgan educates, mentors, and inspires emerging and established artists, students, and community members to create”
In addition, the exhibition must contain at least 50% work on paper. Works included in the exhibition should be united under one theme; however, it is encouraged to expand outside of paper to include other mediums.
Exhibiting Artists will be expected to participate in community engagement in the form of a workshop, panel discussion, or other public programming.
