The PrattMWP Gallery, located in the renowned art museum, Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute in Utica, NY, awards exhibitions to emerging and mid-career artists working in a range of media. Throughout the year, the selected exhibitions support the PrattMWP College of Art & Design students education and provide cultural enrichment to the surrounding community.

Munson-Williams is a community-centered, anti-racist organization where we foster diversity, equity, and inclusion through action. 


We are currently accepting proposals from artists working in all media.

Anticipated exhibition dates will be held in the months of November 2023, and February 2024.  Artists selected will receive a modest stipend, exhibition postcard, and a catered reception.  Accommodations will also be provided for up to 2 nights in a nearby hotel.

Selected artists will be expected to offer a gallery talk/and/or presentation to PrattMWP students and community members during the reception.  (Reception and artist talks may be moved to a virtual format if campus health/safety conditions change.) 

The gallery awards solo, as well as two-person exhibitions. We are open to artist collectives, funding provided for up to two members of the collective. See the Gallery Floor Plan here.
