The Emerging Curators program offers grants up to $2.500 to assist an emerging curator or curators in executing an exhibition focused on jewelry and/or metalwork.
Who is Eligible?
SNAG realizes that emerging curators in the field of Jewelry and Metalwork have varied backgrounds. An emerging curator may be a recent graduate of a jewelry and/or metalwork program with an exhibition idea; or artists who have hosted a few exhibitions and are looking to stay in the curatorial field; or curators looking to host an exhibition about the jewelry and metalworking field. On the application, you will have the opportunity to expand on why you fit the title of  “emerging curator.” We think this is exactly what will make this program dynamic and diverse! Priority will be given to exhibitions occurring in North America (United States, Canada, Mexico).

A selection committee awards grants based on the following objectives:
  • Support Documentation and Scholarship
  • Encourage Innovative Research
  • Promote Curatorial Practice
  • Educate the Public

Additional Benefits:
  • An online version of the exhibition hosted on the SNAG//SPACE website
  • A special post on the SNAG news blog
  • Promotions and marketing of the exhibition
  • ½ page ad on the exhibition in any two issues of Metalsmith magazine
  • Announcements on the exhibition to be run in Riveting News, SNAG’s weekly e-newsletter
  • Access to our Maker Profiles for potential artists for exhibition
