Return to annual Calendars of Exhibitions


What is included

These calendars reference exhibitions devoted primarily to American representational art. Not all exhibitions submitted to TFAO are included in calendars.

Excluded content includes:

Revisions of dates are accepted and encouraged in order for calendars to be as accurate as possible. Exhibition dates may and do change without notice. The deadline for inclusion in a current monthly calendar is the first day of that month.


To make the most of your visit to an exhibition

If you are touring, you will find American representational art venues to visit in Sources of News Articles Indexed by State within the United States. Call the museum in advance to see if you:

Exhibition dates may and do change without prior notice from museums to TFAO. Always verify dates directly with museums before visiting their exhibitions.


How TFAO updates calendars

Future calendars are updated in two ways:


On a bimonthly basis, TFAO volunteers review the Calendar Update Schedule (see A-C D-G H-L M-Q R-S T-Z) to locate museums for which their furthest exhibition closing month has expired. TFAO then reviews the current and future exhibition sections of websites of targeted museums for new information. TFAO then updates the Schedule's listings for the targeted museums with new information by listing on the schedule the earlier of: 1. the furthest exhibition closing month in time or 2. a month which TFAO deems important for follow up. As a part of this review TFAO also updates the related exhibition calendar to include information on newly discovered exhibitions.


Future calendars and Calendar Update Schedules are checked and updated on a continuous basis as information is received by email from museum sources.


How TFAO uses calendars

Towards the end of each month TFAO volunteers review the calendar for all of the listed exhibition openings for that month. TFAO then reviews published exhibition articles and essays in the sub-index page for each related museum to determine if Resource Library has already published an article or essay concerning each calendar listing. If Resource Library has not yet published an article or essay, TFAO sends by email a request for exhibition information to the museum. TFAO sends requests near the end of the exhibition opening month to allow museums time to gather .jpg images and texts from gallery guides, brochures or catalogues, exhibition wall panels and labels, as well as press releases. TFAO requires six hundred or more words of text to publish a Resource Library article or essay for an exhibition.

For the current month inquiries have been made through University of Iowa Museum of Art
