Emerging Curators is an open call invitation to independent curators who may not have had opportunities to present a project to an audience, or first time curators to submit a Project/Exhibition proposal to be part of Local Project’s 2017 exhibition calendar. This program will provide the curator with an exhibition space, expert art handler for installation, guidance in marketing, a stipend for the curator and artists, and a printed catalog.

Exhibitions will be reviewed by a gallery committee, we will then select 4 proposals for the LP Gallery Space and 2 proposals for the LIC Arts Open Festival.
