HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I—Starting November 16, the Honolulu Museum of Art (HoMA) will accept proposals for its new community-inspired exhibition program at the Art School gallery. HoMA welcomes incisive, surprising, creative and rigorous exhibition proposals organized by community stakeholders that will enliven the arts corridor of Honolulu. 

The Art School gallery exhibition program will support Hawai‘i’s vibrant art scene by partnering with community stakeholders to present four group exhibitions per year.

The dates for each community stakeholder exhibition are as follows: March 8 – April 5, 2019; May 31 – July 5, 2019; August 30 – October 4, 2019; and October 18 – November 22, 2019. 

Applications for 2019 exhibition slots, which must be filed online, will be accepted only November 16 through December 15, 2018. Selected proposals will be notified by January 5, 2019. This program is open to exhibition organizers who are residents of Hawai‘i. 

The details for the HoMA School Request for Proposals and related application can be found at

Proposals will be reviewed by a committee comprised of HoMA staff and four community leaders who will consider criteria such as: originality and timeliness; ability of the exhibition to engage art audiences and the general public; conceptual or thematic integrity of the proposal relative to other submissions; and feasibility of the proposal within the parameters provided in the application. 

Any questions may be directed to the HoMA Art School Exhibition Manager beginning November 16, 2018, at
