Current Submission Opportunities

The Schuylkill Center is currently accepting applications for an exhibition that explores contemporary thinking, practices, and perspectives on Earth Day on the holiday's 50th anniversary. Submissions must be received by December 8, 2019. Click here for details.

Ongoing Submission Opportunities

We accept submissions of environmentally themed artwork on an ongoing basis. This category is open to any artist interested in applying their creative vision to issues that concern the natural environment through materials, concept, or imagery. Our most unique asset is the opportunity for outdoor installations, but the Schuylkill Center also hosts a series of indoor gallery exhibitions throughout the year.

Artists interested in exhibiting at the Center should demonstrate in their cover letter or artist statement how their work responds to the environment and nature. For the indoor gallery, two- or three-dimensional wall- or -pedestal-mounted media in small to medium scale (0 × 40 inches) are eligible, including: sculpture, paintings, works on paper, fiber arts, mixed media, photography, paper arts, and digital/electronic media. Outdoor work has no size limitation. Generally, the installations here are site-specific, so we ask for examples of your past work which relate to your proposed project.

Exhibitions are curated by the environmental art program staff, with occasional visiting curators and/or organizations.

In the spirit of conservation, we encourage digital submissions, especially via file sharing platforms like Dropbox. If submitting via email, please either compress your image files or send in installment emails. Payment must still be submitted via postal mail for digital submissions.

Submission requirements:

  • 10 × 15 digital images, with accompanying file with size and materials information
  • Artist Statement
  • CV/Resume
  • Cover letter
  • Suggested donation to the art program of $20 - via this link or check payable to the Schuylkill Center
