Call for artists

El Museo has an ongoing call for artists interested in exhibition and other opportunities. While our primary focus is visual art (drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, installation, etc.), design, new media and nontraditional practices are equally welcome.

We especially encourage submissions from artists of color and underserved or emerging artists!

Note: our exhibitions are typically scheduled 12 to 18 months in advance. For more information, please contact Bryan Lee at info@elmuseobuffalo.org.

Update 2022: El Museo has exhibitions scheduled through 2022. We are in the process of strategic planning and hiring new staffing for curatorial leadership. New curatorial decisions will not be made until Fall 2022. Please check back here at that time.

Request a studio visit

Let us come to you! A studio visit can be a great opportunity to discuss your work (new, old, in-progress) with our curator.

We can meet you at your studio, office, home, favorite coffee shop—whatever works for you. Please email us with a brief summary of what you would like to do and some images or a link to your website or online gallery at info@elmuseobuffalo.org.
