The Yards is currently accepting proposals for summer - fall of 2019. We will not be accepting any exhibition proposals for the summer. However, proposals for workshops and fun community events are encouraged; the space will act as an active studio from mid-May until July and we would love to welcome others to create with us.

We have three separate application options:

  • If you are interested in curating an exhibition/event or conducting a workshop, please go over this proposal packet. We are most interested in group exhibitions (no solo shows), interactive experiences, unique activations of our space, and inclusive and community-centric events.

  • If you are an individual artist or collaborative group and would like to be considered for future group shows, please email us at with your artist bio, statement, artist resume/CV, examples of work, and availability for the next 6 months. Submissions of this nature are always open. We will generally not contact you until an opportunity is available. On occasion, we may also conduct a thematic open call (follow our Instagram for updates).

  • If you are another art space, platform, collective, or gallery and would like to collaborate, feel free to contact us directly with examples of past events/shows and a description of what you have in mind for the future.

We invite all interested parties to familiarize themselves with the space by attending an upcoming event and speaking with us in person prior to submitting. We look forward to working with all of you!
