The goal of this project is to promote the curatorial profession and to provide our community with perspectives and approaches relevant to our times. Professional development is a keystone of LHAC’s programming. Loan agreements, registrar work, curatorial writing and other professional skill building is available.
The Guest Artist/Curators contract would include accompanying activities to introduce their exhibition and provide additional insight into their unique vision in the form of gallery talks for art appreciators and community, youth education and other outreach.
A competitive stipend of $1000 is provided to the Guest Artist/Curator for their creative contribution. Additional funds will be identified to assist in youth and community outreach education programs affiliated, and other financial needs of exhibition planning such as art shipping and artist visits.
LHAF is committed to increasing the visibility and contribution of Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color-identifying artists and curators as well as raising the creative economics of the arts and encouraging leadership roles within the arts profession and the education community.
