STEP 1          PLANNING FOR A TRAVELING EXHIBIT

Involve as many people from your community as possible in the planning process. Determine which exhibitions are appropriate for your community — consider your target audience and your organization’s mission. Locate potential exhibition sites in your community with spaces that are supervised when open to the public and locked during closed hours. Determine the person who will act as the Exhibit Sponsor and NAC's contact person.

Review the art on the NTI-Exhibit page for size, space, and security requirements for each exhibition. Check the NTI Schedule to see what exhibits are available. Applications must be made at least three (3) months in advance of the planned exhibit. Exhibits must be booked for eight weeks and a sponsor may request up to three (3) exhibits per year. Approval of the application is based on the availability of the exhibit requested and funding, which is determined on a first-come, first-served basis.

STEP 3          PRE-INSTALLATION PREPARATIONS

Before the exhibit installation date, the Exhibit Sponsor begins to work on the following: 
1.  Prepare all exhibit walls for installation; i.e., patched, painted, and remove all previously exhibited artwork. 
2.  The TEP-Installer will not be responsible for removal of any artwork that does not belong to the NTI Program.
3.  Publicize the exhibition to the media, community members and local government officials.

STEP 4          OUTREACH/EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES

Sponsors are required to coordinate at least one community outreach and/or education activity to bring in community members to view the exhibition.

STEP 5          INSTALLATION OF ARTWORK

NAC will coordinate the installation/pick-up times and dates with each Exhibit Sponsor. During the installation, the Exhibit Sponsor is required to have someone help the NTI-Installer load and unload the van, and hang the artwork.

STEP 6          FINAL REPORTING

Forty-five (45) days after the exhibition closes, Exhibit Sponsor must submit a Sponsor’s Final Report. Download a NTI-Traveling Exhibition Final Report and Audience Evaluation
