Art Content Guidelines *

All artwork presented for exhibition in the Voices Art Gallery is selected by the Gallery staff. Based on the following criteria, as well as the gallery's mission statement, all exhibitions are designed to be aesthetically accessible to the general public.

The major criteria used in this selection process are as follows:

  • The work should be recognizable as a work of art by UMCCC's average customer.
  • The work should not display segmented body parts as primary content.
  • The work should be engaging and of interest to the UMCCC's average customer.
  • Artwork that celebrates life and living is given priority over work that may be more abstract, controversial, or challenging.
  • All artwork exhibits must be consistent with the Education, Healing, and Community Service missions of the UMCCC.
  • All exhibits portraying overt sexual, pornographic, or violent connotations will be rejected.

Exhibitions seeking exception to any of the above listed criteria must be approved on a case by case basis.

*These guidelines are in accordance to University of Michigan Health Systems as designed by Gifts of Art.

How should I present my art?

All two dimensional art must be mounted/matted, framed and under glass (or plexiglass) and properly wired, ready to hang. The maximum size is 4ft.x 4ft.Three dimensional artwork must be prepared for standing or resting safely in its intended position. The maximum size is 1ft. x 1ft.
