The Community Gallery at Seattle Art Museum is meant to showcase groups that make art and build community in King County, especially work by and for communities and artists who are underrepresented in the museum world due to systematic oppression. We are looking for artwork by and for artists of color, queer artists, disabled artists, youth and elder artists, immigrant and refugee communities and low income artists to fill the first floor area of the building. This area is accessible via the 1 st and University entrance of SAM and is free and open to the public during the hours the museum is open.

Each show must:

-Be composed of 2D work

-Fill the entirety of the first floor corridor

-Feature more than one artist

-Show for about one month
