Call for  Exhibitions


After thorough consideration, The Frame recently received approval for in-person use of our gallery space with COVID precautions, including support for remote applicants. We will have extra sanitizing and social distancing measures to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
We’re excited to announce our fall 2020 call for proposals, but understand that it’s a short turnaround for the first few slots. Please spread the word and bear with us through this delayed start to the season. Looking forward to reading your proposals!

Proposals are due October 25th. All CMU students can find A Tartan’s Responsibility course and quiz on their canvas site. If you have any further questions, please email us at

While The Frame’s physical location is closed for the remainder of the semester our mission to support anti-disiplinary collaborations, creative risk taking, and community engagement has not changed. We are disappointed we won’t be able to physically host the remaining shows this semester, but we are eager to push our online engagment and evolve to support our community’s needs.Please reach out and share ideas about what we can do to support the work of you and your peers. We would love to hear from you.
How are you continuing to make work in midst of the current crisis? Ground us in the present, create a speculative future, share whatever brings you hope and comfort.
