The deadline has been extended to September 30
Science Gallery Atlanta’s upcoming exhibition, THERMAL, will explore the collective role we play in impacting our evolving global and local climates and our responsibility in directing the future of the Earth’s tangible and intangible resources. THERMAL will also represent a call to action for each of us – to embrace individual habits and efforts that can change our communities and develop new approaches to how we can transform our global environment.
In 2024, Science Gallery Atlanta will open the THERMAL exhibition season with a 9,000-square-foot exhibition at the historic Pullman Rail Yards, accompanied by a series of public programs – all informed by a global community of creatives and thought leaders in collaboration with artists, researchers, and youth from the Atlanta region, as well as area research universities and organizations, including Emory University.
Topics for development and partnership include (but are not limited to):
• Climate change • Sustainability • Environmental studies • Material sciences • Agriculture • Water usage • Public Health • Product design • Bioethics • Pollution • City planning • Energy usage
For researchers: Science Gallery Atlanta welcomes your research as a central component in how we develop our exhibitions. You do not have to be an artist or have a pre-existing relationship with an artist – although it’s great if you do! Through our exhibition design process, we foster collaborations between researchers and artists to develop projects. We welcome your ideas for projects, workshops, public talks, events, etc. If selected, we’ll work with you to bring them to life.

We are open to all kinds of proposals, inclusive of art exhibits, activities, workshops, public talks or performances for the exhibition season. Most selected proposals will be funded up to a maximum level of $5,000, which should include all artist fees, materials, equipment, shipping, travel, etc. We enthusiastically welcome proposals that come in below that budget.
We will also consider outstanding larger installations with a budget of up to $10,000, with a focus on experimentation and interaction.These should have a genuine connection to the theme and our target audience. Please note that these are maximum amounts, not targets.
