The Leslie-Lohman Museum reviews artists work for upcoming open shows and encourages artists to submit work for inclusion in them. Please note that we do NOT do individual critiques of submissions. The Director and/or curators/judges for upcoming open shows pick work based upon originality, integrity and awareness of lesbian and gay issues of sexuality and basic human rights in contemporary society. Work by both gay male and lesbians are accepted, as well as, art by straight artists if it is pertinent to the purview of the Museum. Watch for the OPEN CALL on our website for these shows.
Submitting Exhibition Proposals
Proposals for shows must be submitted in writing via email to the Exhibition Committee c/o LLGAFreview@gmail.com. Proposals should include a statement of purpose, size of show and a budget, curator and/or sponsor. LLM will review the proposal and respond within a reasonable time.
Submitting Articles for Publication
in the Journal: The Archive
The Museum accepts for review articles for inclusion in its journal, The Archive. Articles must be pertinent to the purview of the Museum, typed, double spaced and submitted to the Managing Editor, The Archive, for review.
Donating Art Work to the Museum
The LLM is a public non-profit, tax exempt foundation and accepts art work from artists estates and wills, as well as, art from individuals. If you would like to donate art to the Museum email, write or call about what it is that you intend to donate along with a photograph or JPG of the work(s). Your intentions will be reviewed by the Acquisitions Committee and you will be contacted about the results of their review and how to proceed from there.
Please note that the Museum cannot legally appraise a work of art donated to it. This is the responsibility of the donor. The employees and volunteers of LLM are not professional appraisers. LLM can suggest appraisers and/or where to find such services..
