SAM Local Spotlight is an opportunity for an artist to exhibit a body of work at SAM. It is an exciting, profile-raising exhibition for a regional artist, where the aim of the show is to engage, inspire and promote local and regional cultural activities as part of SAM’s annual program.

This is also great opportunity to gain professional experience working in an art museum context - working with SAM‘s team across curatorial, marketing and communications, registration, education and public programs, and much more.

Previous SAM Local Spotlight artists include Maree Santilla, Kate Hill, & Tarli Bird.
