Many artists are struggling in getting their works accepted by any museum. There are a lot of reasons for this. But one of the most challenging is that they are competing with a lot of great artists like them. Of course, museums are very particular in the artwork they accept. They should have a good value that would encourage people to visit.

A museum is a place where you exhibit and receive comments on your artworks. This is the place where you have a chance to be discovered by many art dealers. Millions of people are visiting museums regularly to find beautiful creations and to discover and recognize new artists. You can be a part of what they see here. Museum, however, has a limited space, so you have no guarantee if your works would be good enough to be showcased in their exhibit. Usually, they only choose the best among the best. This is why landing in a museum and make a proposal is really hard. The process is highly competitive and complex so you have to be strong, patient and talented in order to have the opportunity to line up your creations with the masters.
Here are some of our advice to get your works in any museums nearest you:
Know and learn the process of the proposal. This will help you determine if the museum you are submitting your artwork to has a good offer for you.
We know that the proposal process can be daunting. When your creation is being exhibited and people are already considering you as one of the great artists, then expect that there would be an increase in the demand for your work after the event. For your next exhibit, expect that the price for your artwork to be higher. The downside, however, is that there would also be higher expectations so be sure to always do your best in all the artwork you would do.
In working, it is not new to us that there are problems we need to deal with. Like others, you need to be aware of many issues that are persistent in the industry. Also, there are lots of competitors around you so be sure to find a way to be always a step ahead of them.
You should research the history of the museum you are considering to submit your creation to. You should know the museum’s schedule and types of exhibitions they showcase. In an interview, be honest with yourself. Your bio or résumé should reflect on what you are saying.
Ask for a brief meeting with the curator of the museum, respect their time and knowledge. You should bring several copies of your creation with you and make a brief presentation for each. Always remember to send a thank you letter to the curator immediately.
These are some of our tips for you to be able to successfully submit your creation with us or in any other museum you’ve considered.
