ArtView Program

We are not currently taking any applications for ArtView. Please check back in 2016.

The ArtView Program (see ArtView exhibitions) is an opportunity for local and regional artists to show a selection of their work in the perimeter galleries of the Museum. The program is a significant and highly successful exhibition series designed for both new and established artists to gain public exposure in a museum environment. Currently, the ArtView Program does not offer receptions or educational programs. The ArtView Program is announced in the Museum’s newsletter and website. The exhibition period is generally 10-12 weeks. ArtView exhibitions are supported by a grant from The FUNd at the Plains Art Museum Foundation.
