LHUCA’s main building has four art gallery spaces and hosts over 20 exhibitions each year, featuring regional, national, and international artists. The call is seeking proposals that consider and speak to how the gallery space will be used for a specific exhibition. Applicants can review the gallery floor plans via the organization’s website
