1. Curatorial Proposal Submission Form: please submit the ONLINE APPLICATION FORM

2. Images: Up to eight jpgs associated conceptually with the curatorial proposal. Each jpg should be 1200px in the largest dimension, labeled to correspond with the inventory numbers listed on the application (i.e. 01_ShowTitle).
