How can I submit my portfolio/exhibition proposal to be shown at MOCAD?

Can I rent space at the museum to show an art exhibition?

While we offer facility rentals, in most cases we aren’t able to accommodate installation of a privately curated exhibition. Please see our Facility Rentals page for more information.

Can you suggest an art appraiser or tell me how much my art piece is worth?

No, unfortunately we cannot appraise your artwork. As a non collecting institution we do not regularly work with any art appraisers and can’t make a recommendation.

Will MOCAD buy my artwork for its collection?

As a non collecting institution, we don’t purchase art and do not have a collection.
