YWCA Art Exhibits

Art Exhibits

We invite artists to exhibit their work in our lobby and two lounges/meeting rooms. There are approximately 100,000 visits to our building each year, by people in our programs. Two artists are exhibited at a time, one in each lounge; the lobby area is shared. Exhibits usually hang for two months. All artists with suitable wall hanging-type art are invited. Women and people of diverse ethnic backgrounds are particularly encouraged to submit.

The Art Committee periodically reviews all submissions and selects artists for scheduling. The Committee calls the artists to discuss dates and availability.

Artists are encouraged to visit the building in advance of an exhibit for a better understanding of the rooms and hanging conditions. Artists may also offer their work for sale. Price lists will be made available in lounges and at the front desk. The YWCA charges a 20% commission.
