The UCSB Library Exhibitions Committee is pleased to consider exhibition proposals from UCSB students, faculty, employees, and affiliated organizations. We plan exhibitions up to two years in advance, proposals for exhibitions sooner than this will be evaluated based on space available.

Exhibitions in the UCSB Library are intended to showcase Library holdings and collections and/or enhance the cultural and intellectual life of the University and the larger community. In particular, the UCSB Library is committed to presenting a high-quality exhibitions program that supports the teaching and research mission of the University. Preference is given to exhibitions that connect to the UCSB curriculum, faculty and student research, campus organizations and events, and/or current events.

Please refer to the Library's Exhibition Policy before proposing an exhibition.

If the exhibition is time sensitive (e.g. related to an event or anniversary) please explain.
Please provide a suggested beginning and end date with month, day, and year.
Please explain how this exhibition fits the scope of the Library’s exhibition policy --
Describe the items to be displayed (e.g. paintings, sculpture, posters, digital media, books, maps), including all material types and providing specific dimensions where available. Note that the Library is not able to ensure the safety or security of exhibited items or to provide any insurance for exhibited items. Therefore, it is recommended that reproductions be used in place of originals whenever possible.
