Learn more about our exhibition programming
We support those supporting the arts in their communities with deeply discounted arts and humanities exhibitions through ExhibitsUSA (EUSA), the traveling exhibition program managed by Mid-America Arts Alliance. We also support exhibitions, special projects, celebrations, and events at The Culture Lab, located in our home offices in Kansas City, Missouri.
ExhibitsUSA exhibitions create access to an array of arts and humanities experiences, nurture the understanding of diverse cultures and art forms, and encourage the expanding depth and breadth of cultural life in local communities. If you are looking for a new exhibition experience for your community, or help in getting your exhibition on the road, you’ve come to the right place.
ExhibitsUSA, founded in 1988, annually offers more than 25 diverse art and humanities exhibitions to museums and other exhibiting institutions nationwide. We offer a variety of five-week, seven-week, and ten-week exhibitions, available at reduced rental fees.
All exhibitors in the six states of the Mid-America Arts Alliance region (Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas) are offered a discounted In-region Rental Fee for traveling exhibitions. M-AAA’s partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and state arts agencies make this discount possible.
