Dittmar Memorial Gallery

Dittmar Memorial Gallery, established in 1972, is a student-operated gallery that enlightens and challenges the Northwestern University community with the works of emerging and underrepresented artists from the Chicago area and the Midwest. The staff at Dittmar is dedicated to developing and fostering the Northwestern community’s awareness of the changing attitudes and trends in the art world. We invite artists who work in the contemporary vein, as well as artists who offer an alternative perspective that hinges on the periphery of the art world. In essence, our goal is to provide well-deserved exposure to those outside or on the margins of the mainstream art world.

Northwestern University's Dittmar Memorial Gallery welcomes submissions through a formal review process.

Submission instructions can be found at:

For artists who are applying from out-of-state, please note that we are not able to provide funding for shipping or travel expenses.

Please contact us at if you have any questions or concerns.
