apexart wants to come to you. Any city, any town, anywhere in the world. We are offering a one-time franchise opportunity where apexart will come to your city and appoint you the director of your own temporary non-profit exhibition space. For a four-week exhibition, and in the months preceding, you will be the director and/or curator and/or staff of your own institution with a budget, a salary, and complete control.

We will provide up to 10,000 USD in funding, along with the necessary guidance to make your curated exhibition happen, accompanied by an apexart brochure. In addition, prior to your show, we’ll arrange to bring you to NYC for three days, all expenses paid, to visit apexart and meet our staff.

Submit up to a 250-word statement on why apexart should come to you. Applications will be accepted until midnight December 1, 2008 EST, from anyone, anywhere in the world. Visit www.apexart.org/franchise.htm for more information on how to apply.
