Osage Nation Museum Open Call for Artists

The Osage Nation Museum maintains an open call for Osage Artists to submit work for exhibition consideration at the Museum.   The Osage Nation Museum accepts submissions for art in any media.  Artists may propose specific works or provide work samples representing current/pending projects.

 Exhibition availability is contingent upon quality of work and exhibition schedule.  At any given time, the exhibition schedule is a year in advance.  While curatorial staff also plan exhibitions apart from received submissions, we consider an open submission policy key to the process of ongoing curatorial and cultural research.

The Osage Nation Museum reserves the right to deny or accept any or all submissions.  Once a submission is received please allow 4-6 weeks for the review process.  Replies to submissions will be emailed.

The Museum’s current exhibition space for open call artists is a display case in our East Gallery. The case dimensions are: Height - 57", Width - 59", Depth - 16".
