Thank you for considering the High Museum of Art’s exhibition program. Please use the following guidelines to submit your proposal.

Exhibition proposals may be submitted by hard copy or email to the contact information listed below and must follow the appropriate guidelines. The Museum will do its best to respond to your submission, but please note that we receive a large number of inquiries. A Museum representative will contact you should additional materials be requested for further consideration.

Exhibitions are generally planned a minimum of two years in advance.
