Osage Nation Museum issues call for Osage artists’ work

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

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

In the release, Museum Curator Hallie Winter said: “We are excited to launch this component of our curatorial programming. It is important to give Osage artists a platform to exhibit their work, when they have often been underrepresented. The amount of talent our Osage artists have is staggering and the Osage Nation Museum would like to start showcasing the contemporary work that these artists have to offer. We hope that the museum will become an incubator for emerging Osage artists of all mediums.”
