Call For Proposals

Apply for Exhibitions, Residency, and the new Snap Space.

The Kansas City Artists Coalition’s Exhibition Series explores the diversity of expression that shape contemporary culture, art, and ideas. KCAC is a space for innovative and experimental art, which does not readily lend itself to commercial venues.

Snap Space is a new exhibition program offered by the Kansas City Artists Coalition, located in the Project Room across the hall from the main galleries. Slated for  experimental exhibitions by  artists 35 and younger, KCAC is encouraging young artists, collaborators, and curators to propose 3 week exhibitions. Exhibitors are encouraged to facilitate workshops, demonstrations, talks, or panels throughout the exhibition.

The Residency at the Artists Coalition strives build and improve intercultural understanding while providing artists an opportunity to participate in the dynamic arts scene in Kansas City.
