Thank you for your interest in participating in "After Hours," the Brown Arts Initiative's annual staff appreciation art exhibition! Please take a moment to carefully read the following information before submitting.


About the Show:

Each year, the Brown Arts Initiative (BAI) organizes an exhibition to highlight and celebrate the creative work of Brown University staff. The BAI solicits submissions of original artwork from staff across the University and produces an exhibition in the Atrium Gallery of the Granoff Center for the Creative Arts in the first few weeks of the spring semester. The exhibition typically includes work in a variety of media contributed by staff from a wide array of offices and departments.

This year's exhibition will be on view from Monday, January 14 to Thursday, February 21, 2019. The closing reception will take place on February 21 at 5:00pm.


Submission Process:

The Brown Arts Initiative uses a service called Submittable to manage submissions. In order to see the submission form, you will need a Submittable account. Please scroll down to the bottom of this page to sign in or to create an account.

Please complete this form for each work or series you'd like to submit for consideration. You may submit up to 10 individual works or a series of up to 10 related works.

Upon BAI review, a select number of applicants will be notified to discuss the potential for installation. Artists will work with the BAI Graduate Curatorial Fellow to develop an installation plan that is then reviewed for compliance with Brown’s Environmental and Health and Safety guidelines.

All work must be dropped off at the Granoff Center between 11:00am - 1:00pm on Tuesday, January 8 or Wednesday, January 9, 2019.

The submission deadline is Sunday, December 2, 2018.


BAI Selection Considerations:

The Granoff Center houses classroom, office and conference spaces and regularly hosts public events. Thus, the BAI must adhere to all Environmental and Health and Safety guidelines as outlined by Brown University and ensure a healthy, welcoming, non-hostile work environment, as required by law. The BAI highly values academic and artistic freedom. It is also responsible for respecting the greater Brown community when exhibiting artwork of sensitive or challenging subject matter. Work of this nature may require additional consideration to ensure that the work is exhibited with care and thoughtfulness.
