Lunch Money

Type: Exhibition Opportunities [View all]
Posted by: After School Special
Deadline: Sat, July 1st, 2017

After School Special is an organization headed by a collective of artists seeking community engagement through nontraditional exhibitions, film screenings, queer events, informal classes, applicable workshops, malleable dialogue, and everything in between.

As a group of working and emerging artists, we seek to support creative individuals of a similar stature by providing opportunities for under recognized, socially engaged, young makers. A.S.S. engages art and community at a local, national, and international level in hopes of becoming part of the larger cultural discussion that defines us all. We are not bound by walls, but by the value of ideas and the people behind them.

Our operation is currently based out of a raw space in the Riverwest neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI. This location provides studios for eight current members and houses The Lunchbox, a gallery space built into a former freight elevator shaft.




LUNCH MONEY is a periodical call for proposals for solo, collaborative, or group exhibitions, curatorial projects, screenings, workshops, or other art happenings.



In an effort to further support the artists we platform, After School Special has revamped their open call to select a single proposal each application cycle. LUNCH MONEY will provide the accepted exhibition proposal with a $100 budget to aid in the creation, transportation and installation of the show.


Proposals may be for solo, collaborative or curated exhibitions. Complimentary programming (to take place at the opening, closing or during the exhibition run) may also be considered and is encouraged! The proposal cycle is for programming from Jan. 1 - May 31 2018 cycle. Submissions are due July 1 2017 MIDNIGHT CST.


Submissions are FREE from now until June 1 2017.

Submissions sent in between June 2 - June 16 will have a $5 fee through a Paypal button on our website.
