Calls for Entry


Online Application Assistance
Artists needing assistance with the CaFÉ online system can contact CaFÉ directly. 

Foothills Art Center does not accept unsolicited exhibition proposals. If there is an opportunity to apply to a juried component of one of our exhibitions, a prospectus will be listed on this page.

CaFÉ (which stands for Call for Entry) is one of the more popular websites for entering exhibitions online, and it’s the one that FAC uses for all of our juried exhibitions. We even make it less expensive to apply through CaFÉ – plus, we give you longer to apply!

One of the best things about CaFÉ is that they have great step-by-step instructions to help you use their website. Learn how to apply to calls for entry using CaFÉ.  They make it very easy to set up a profile, search for opportunities, and apply to exhibitions.

For questions about the jury process, e-mail Eriq Hochuli at

Signal Box Design Call For Entry

Foothills Art Center and the City of Golden are teaming up to further beautify downtown Golden. Signal boxes are large grey metal boxes located at many intersections in Golden. They contain the hardware for managing the timing of traffic and crossing signals. We would like to ask the community of artists in our state to design and submit artwork to be applied to these boxes. We are very excited for this opportunity to highlight the talent of our local artists in these high traffic and high visibility locations. The signal boxes typically go unnoticed by passersby and in some cases they can be quite unsightly. Rather than taking measures to camouflage them further, we would like to re-purpose them as a showcase for artistic excellence.

Deadline for Entry: October 15th 2019

Coming Soon

Call for Entries for 2020 Member’s Show, and 2020 Community Gallery are upcoming in the second half of 2019.
