The Grand Galleries Call for Proposals

The Grand Galleries are a contemporary, municipal visual arts space located within the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts in historic downtown Tracy, California. This 37,000 sq.’ interdisciplinary fine arts and education facility is owned and operated by the City of Tracy. The Exhibitions Program provides professional exhibition opportunities in the Central Valley near the Bay Area and Sacramento. Negotiable funding is also available for accommodations, production, returnshipping, travel, and special needs. The Grand Galleries seek exhibition and diverse programming proposals from artists, curators, and collection lenders.

Proposals will be reviewed by the Grand Galleries Advisory Committee and recommended for exhibition opportunities. Proposals are open to all media including installation, new media, and performance art; there are no geographic restrictions. Work must have been completed in the past three years unless part of a thematic grouping or historical collection. Artists may also submit proposals for new works, providing samples of work representative for review.
