If you would like to share materials regarding a proposed donation, acquisition, or exhibition, please fill out the following web form.

Please note:

  • Incomplete submissions will not be considered.
  • Digital submissions are strongly encouraged by completing the form below. If you are unable to submit your materials digitally, you may send materials by mail addressed to: Curatorial Review Committee, National Museum of Women in the Arts, 1250 New York Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20005. Materials sent by mail require additional time for processing.
  • We are unable to return submitted materials. Please do not include any original artwork OR self-addressed stamped envelopes.
  • Although the Curatorial Review Committee is happy to review all proposals, please understand that opportunities for inclusion in the exhibition program and collection are very limited.
  • NMWA staff cannot make studio visits, view works in person, or make visits to private collections during the initial review phase. If the Curatorial Review Committee is interested in your work, we will contact you about any further steps.
  • NMWA as an institution cannot perform appraisals or authentications of any work of art.

Although the Committee carefully reviews each proposal, due to the exceptional volume of submissions received we are unable to respond individually. If you do not receive a response within 90 days, this is an indication that the Committee has declined to pursue your proposal.
