Exhibition Inquiries at the Dennos Museum Center

The Exhibitions Advisory Committee, comprised of NMC faculty, staff, and community partners, meets once per year to review exhibition proposals with Dennos Museum Center curatorial staff. Like most museum programs, the Dennos creates its exhibition schedule approximately two years in advance.

Although the majority of artists selected for exhibition are invited by Dennos curatorial staff, artists may elect to submit materials for consideration.

About the Galleries:

The Dennos Museum Center houses five temporary galleries, each of which rotates approximately three times per year.
