Description

San Diego Repertory Theatre is currently accepting Lyceum Gallery exhibit proposal submissions for our 2020-2021 season! Please read through the information below, and follow the link provided for exhibit options, dates and application. Any questions can be directed to the REP's Audience Engagement Curator at soie@sdrep.org.

General Gallery Information for Artists

The mission of the Lyceum Gallery echoes the mission of San Diego Repertory Theatre – to promote an interconnected community through works that nourish progressive political and social values and celebrate the multiple voices of our region. While the gallery spaces can be a destination-draw on their own, their presence in the Lyceum Theatre lobby makes visiting a one-of-a-kind opportunity for audiences and viewers to take in a wealth of art, culture and expression in one location. The gallery is open to the public from 12pm-6pm daily, except holidays, and to theatre goers before and after any performance.

There are two gallery spaces – an Upper and Lower Gallery. The Upper Lobby Gallery can accommodate between 15-20 pieces and the Lower Lobby Gallery between 20-25 pieces. Artists can submit proposals for one or both galleries. Factors in selecting artists, in addition to those explained under the exhibit options HERE, are quality of artwork, costs, special requirements and requests associated with proposed exhibition, and compatibility with our hanging system.
San Diego Repertory Theatre does not operate a traditional art gallery or museum. We do not have a gift shop or the ability to sell merchandise. We do not have a gallery staff and do not provide a presence in the gallery spaces during open hours. Artists may choose to price and sell their work, which is subject to sales tax and a Lyceum Theatre commission of 20%. Any sales are handled by the REP’s Front of House Staff and Business Office.

Our art hanging system is a hook and cable system that is conducive to displaying framed works and other pieces that have picture hanging wire installed on it. Due to space and safety restrictions, we cannot exhibit sculptural work. All artwork must be prepped for installation by the artist prior to its delivery to The REP, and artists are responsible for their own transportation and installations of artwork.

If an artist’s proposal is selected, the curator will reach out via email with information. Please do not follow up by phone or email to check on the status of applications. We receive many inquiries about exhibiting at The REP and can only show a limited number of exhibitions per season. If an application is not accepted for the upcoming season, you may reapply the following season. San Diego Repertory Theatre reserves the right to cancel or postpone any exhibitions should unforeseen conditions or situations arise. If you would like to view the full gallery policy document ahead of submitting a proposal, please email soie@sdrep.org.
