Gallery Exhibitions at the MMAC

The Merced Multicultural Arts Center Galleries are a contemporary visual arts space located in downtown Merced, California. This 28,000 sq.’ interdisciplinary fine arts and education facility also houses the offices of the Merced County Arts Council, a non profit 501c3 organization established in 1978 and relocated into its brand new facility in 1996 through a private/public partnership with the City of Merced. The Exhibitions Program provides professional exhibition opportunities in the heart of the Central Valley.

The Merced Multicultural Arts Center Galleries seek exhibition and diverse programming proposals from artists, curators, and collection lenders.

The Merced County Arts Council seeks artists primarily from California and will give priority to work that reflects the issues and lifestyle of the myriad cultures represented in Merced County. We encourage exhibits that lend to opportunities for community engagement or educational components for K12 schools. The Arts Council may design activities such as discussion groups about the issue or a lecture about the technique and strongly encourage the artists to participate.

Proposals are open to all media including installation, new media, and performance art. Work must have been completed in the past three years unless part of a thematic grouping or retrospectives. Artists may also submit proposals for new works, providing samples of work representative for review.

FOR CONSIDERATION, PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING MATERIALS:

1) 10-15 jpeg images on PC / Mac compatible cd-rom/dvd. Do not send slides or original works. Provide a corresponding image list (hard copy) that includes title, media, date of creation and size of each work. Artists working in non-traditional formats may opt to submit a PC / Mac compatible cd-rom/dvd or website link. All other submission options contact MCAC for additional details.

2) Professional Resume including Exhibition Record

3) Exhibition Concept/Statement of Intent

4) Date Restrictions—Please remember exhibitions may be scheduled up to 18 months in advance.

5) S.A.S.E. for return of materials. Failure to provide will result in the disposal of materials at the Gallery’s discretion post-review.

6) $15 Entry fee.
