The Arts Council of Greater Lansing offers members the opportunity to showcase artwork in the contemporary setting at 1208 Turner Street. Exhibits run for one month (as assigned by the Arts Council). An open call to dues-paying Arts Council members is announced twice per year.

Opportunity includes an artist-hosted opening reception held at the Arts Council (artists are responsible for providing light refreshments). Receptions are typically held on Fridays (some are on Arts Night Out).

Chosen artists deliver and install their own work, using the Arts Council's Walker Display system, which runs approximately 20 feet and holds up to 300 pounds of weight in total (50 pounds per hanging mechanism). See what the system looks like.

Artists are encouraged to contact media, invite friends and family and promote their exhibition on social media platforms.

The Arts Council provides marketing, support and exhibit consultations to exhibiting artists.
