2020 MFA Screening Submission Form
The College Art Association (CAA)’s Services to Artists Committee (SAC) invites MFA students to submit work for consideration for the upcoming CAA 108th Annual Conference in Chicago, IL, in February 2020. Selected works will be premiered during the conference in the Media Lounge on Wednesday February 12, 12:15–1:45 pm, and screened during the conference at the ARTexchange exhibition, which will be presented at the Hokin Gallery at Columbia College (623 South Wabash), a half block north of the conference hotel.

Through this screening and exhibition initiative, SAC aims to welcome the next generation of artists and practitioners into our midst. Our annual MFA Screening celebrates the hard work of MFA students across the nation and world, while exposing their art works to a broad audience. We look forward to reviewing your submissions.

Please use the form below to submit your entry (a maximum of three per participant). Submission for consideration is free, and membership with CAA is not required (we are collecting that information for statistical purposes).

In  collaboration with the Committee on Women in the Arts,  CAA offers 50 percent of the 2020 conference's content in celebration of the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage in the United States, while also acknowledging the discriminatory practices that limited voting rights for Indigenous women and women of color, even after the passage of the 19th amendment in 1920. The Services to Artists Committee encourages applicants to embrace the spirit of the 2020 conference by engaging issues of inclusivity and intersectional discourses in the arts.

About us: The Services to Artists Committee (SAC) was formed by the CAA Board of Directors to seek broader participation by artists and designers in the organization and the Annual Conference. SAC identifies and addresses concerns facing artists and designers; creates and implements programs and events at the conference and beyond; explores ways to encourage greater participation and leadership in CAA; and identifies ways to establish closer ties with other arts professionals and institutions. To this end, committee members are responsible for the programming of ARTspace and its related events.
