Sandy Spring Museum accepts proposals from individuals or groups who want to create programs, exhibits, performances, or activities at the museum that will benefit the community at-large. We encourage projects that make use of the museum’s archives for research and inspiration.
Individuals from diverse multidisciplinary fields are encouraged to apply. This includes visual artists, painters, musicians, composers, writers, dancers, photographers, filmmakers, playwrights, and multimedia artists.
Proposals can be submitted year-round but typically must be received six months in advance of your preferred dates. We strongly encourage artists who will be exhibiting at the museum to become museum members in order to support the exhibition programs. We accept and encourage unsolicited proposals for exhibitions. We also encourage exhibit proposals that are accompanied by a proposal for a public event, such as a lecture, workshop, or demonstration.
