Submission Guidelines:

Waubonsee Community College (WCC) invites submissions for all media. Proposals will be accepted for solo, two-person, and curated exhibitions for the Arrowhead Gallery. Solo exhibits of installation or sculptural work for the Dickson Window Art Project Space will also be accepted.

An Exhibition Committee, made up of WCC Art faculty and Art staff, reviews proposals periodically. To be considered for an exhibition you must submit all of the requested materials on the Submission Checklist (see below). If your submission is accepted for exhibition, then you will be contacted to exhibit your artwork.

If accepted for an exhibition at WCC you will be provided with photo documentation, and on campus marketing/communications support (website listing, email announcements, posters, and take-aways). Also, your program will be archived in our paper and digital archives. If possible WCC will also capture video documentation.

Our staff works with the artist to facilitate and support the exhibition. There is no funding for exhibitions, however we do offer paid visiting artist lecture and/or workshop opportunities to our exhibiting artists. Lectures are free and open to the public. Workshops are for current WCC students who pre-register.

The Arrowhead Gallery is 874 square feet of professional exhibition space, and the Dickson Window Art Project Space is 166 square feet of sculptural/installation space. All exhibitions are open to the public free of charge. Please see the DOWNLOADS section at the top right hand side of this webpage for maps and images of the spaces.
