Art in the Library is launching its first-ever call for Art Exhibition Proposals to display a student art exhibit at the Dirac Science Library this upcoming Fall 2022 semester. The purpose of the Art in the Library committee is to bring more art into the libraries, and enrich the library environment as an aesthetic and academic space. As part of this initiative, the committee is calling for artists to submit Exhibition Proposals for the upcoming Fall semester.
Are you an artist or group of artists looking to exhibit your work? Interested in sharing your art with the FSU Community? Have a curated exhibit you’re ready to share? Submit an exhibition proposal for the fall semester by July 7th 2023. This semester the Art in Library Committee is accepting proposals to exhibit at the Dirac Science Library, on the main floor in the hallway surrounding the central stairwell and elevators. This space is viewed by hundreds of students, staff, and faculty a day and can accommodate 10-15 hanging works depending on the size. For more information and to submit your exhibition proposal, visit this link.
The committee will be reviewing proposals throughout July and successful applicants will be notified and invited to exhibit by August 1. Applicants invited to exhibit for the coming fall semester will be asked to confirm their commitment by the first week of August and installation will take place at Dirac during the week before classes start (the week of August 15). Any questions about the program may be directed to Leah Sherman, FSU Libraries Visual Performing Arts Librarian and Art in the Library Chair, at LRSherman@fsu.edu.
