Artist Opportunities

The Ann Arbor Art Center (A2AC) is committed to providing accessible opportunities for artists at every stage of their careers, providing invaluable space and time to explore, experiment, and enrich their creative practice.

Located in the heart of Ann Arbor’s emerging creative district, A2AC is the premier venue for artists to sell, exhibit and teach. To stay up to date on all upcoming artist opportunities, follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and/or sign up to our artist mailing list.


Our goal with A2AC Murals is to help transform downtown Ann Arbor’s emerging Creative District, provide a sense of community centered around public art, and provide a platform for regional and national artists to showcase their work.

All submissions are reviewed by the A2AC Art in Public Committee, made up of a diverse team of A2AC staff, artists, curators, community members, and art professionals. If selected, we will contact you to let you know that your work will be included in the A2AC Murals Artist Deck for one year.

Please note that if you are accepted by the Art in Public Committee to be included in our artist deck, that does not guarantee that you will be hired as a final muralist.

A2AC Shop

Three times a year, we will offer an open call to be considered to be featured in the A2AC Shop/Online Shop. Applications will be reviewed by the A2AC Shop Committee, which is composed of community members, board members, and A2AC staff. Accepted artists will not need to reapply within one year of acceptance.

The latest round of applications closed on May 19. Join our Artists Mailing List to be the first to hear about upcoming calls for art.
