CWAC Exhibitions

CWAC Exhibitions invites University of Chicago students and instructors to propose exhibitions for display in the Cochrane-Woods Art Center. CWAC Exhibitions is a collaborative endeavor; the CWAC Exhibitions committee will work with curators on all phases of the exhibition from development through installation and archiving. This opportunity is open to College and Graduate students and instructors across all departments, with priority given to courses taking place in CWAC. The CWAC Exhibitions program will draw on the Joel Snyder Materials Collection (JSMC) and other objects that are safe to borrow and display in our context. View the installation archive of past CWAC Exhibitions on LUNA.

The CWAC Exhibitions Call for Proposals for academic year 2023–24 has closed. We plan to announce a call for the 2024–25 academic year in late summer/early fall 2024. For more information about potential exhibition sites and our evaluation criteria, please visit our guide to Preparing a Proposal for CWAC Exhibitions.


CWAC Exhibitions is supported by a generous gift from Brenda Shapiro with additional support from the College Curricular Innovation Fund and the Department of Art History.
