Alutiiq Museum Seeks Contemporary Artwork

coralsmThe Alutiiq Museum seeks contemporary artwork by living Alaskan artists for its collections. Artists are invited to submit a proposal following the instructions below. All submissions will be reviewed by our collections advisory committee for potential purchase through Rasmuson Foundation's Art Acquisition Fund. This is a grant funded program. Items that meet the museum's collecting goals, selection criteria, and interest will be featured in a proposal to the fund. Selection for the application process does not gaurantee a sale to the museum. This process can take several months.

Artists are encouraged to submit any item of visual artwork. However, the museum is especially interested in collecting regalia. For examples of the artwork purchased through this program please visit our contemporary art gallery.

All submissions must be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (844-425-8844, x22) by 4:00 pm, Thursday, November 30, 2017. No late or incomplete applications will be considered.
