VSA arts calls for exhibition proposals reflecting on disability for display at Kennedy Center.


WASHINGTON -- VSA arts, an international not-for-profit organization in which people with disabilities learn through, participate in and enjoy the arts, is seeking art exhibition proposals for production in 2009 and 2010. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 20.

Proposed exhibitions must have a theme, concept or premise that is relevant to and advances VSA arts' mission. Exhibitions can be international in scope and should include five or more artists, a majority of which must have disabilities. Exhibitions may also include a wide range of media, including digital art, drawing, installation, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and video.

Exhibition proposals will be selected through a competitive process. Selection will be based on, but not limited to, the curatorial premise of the exhibition, previous experience and professional references. Each application will be reviewed by a panel of leading visual arts professionals, curatorial communities and VSA arts representatives.

If selected, proposed exhibitions will be produced in partnership with VSA arts to include shipping, installation/de-installation, collaterals, marketing, publicity and events. Selected proposals will be initially considered for production and presentation from May 28 to June 25 at the Terrace Gallery of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Proposals will also be reviewed for programming in advance of and during the 2010 International VSA arts Festival, also to be held in Washington, D.C.
