Submission Guidelines
The university welcomes proposals for artwork that aligns with the spirit of Northeastern: innovative, entrepreneurial, global, and urban.

All artwork exhibited at the university will go through a curatorial process.

When applicable, private university spaces, including offices, interior lobbies, and conference rooms, may be curated by the “owners” of that space, in collaboration with the Campus Curator.

Gallery 360 exhibits are curated by a formal committee process. That process and timeframe is outlined on the Gallery 360 website.

Temporary formal exhibits in public spaces throughout the campus (West Village Atrium, International Village lobby, hallways throughout Curry Student Center, and Ell Hall) are curated by the Campus Curator, sometimes in collaboration with the Public Art Initiative team. The process for submission is outlined on the Gallery 360 website.

Proposals for public art installations–both permanent and sort-term–are reviewed by the Public Art Initiative team. Final decisions are made by the president of Northeastern. The team recruits local, national, and international artists, and looks favorably on proposals by artists from the Northeastern community. Submit proposals to
