Curators Manual

Thank you for agreeing to curate an art exhibit for Del Ray Artisans (DRA), a community arts organization that has grown strong due to the enthusiastic commitment of our volunteer members just like you! Your curating responsibilities begin from the moment the Curating Director approves your exhibit idea and ends when artists have retrieved their artwork at the exhibit closing, and walls have been properly patched and painted.

This Curator’s Manual provides step-by-step guidance throughout the process, identifies key individuals with whom you must collaborate, and refers to specific examples and templates for your use.

If you have any questions, please contact the Director of Curating at
