We strive to make PF an accessible space, we do not have full ADA compliance yet, but we can accommodate. Please contact us in advance if you have any special needs for entry into the building, or seating. We have a wheelchair accessible entrance (on 12th Ave NE) that leads directly into the gallery but it is separate from the main entrance. Please reach out if you have concerns, we would be happy to plan in advance so you can comfortably enjoy your time at the space.

PF is a safer space. Read more here.


Rental Inquiries

Public Functionary is not available to rent for exhibitions. However, private events, panel discussions, workshops and other performances in the space are possible. Please contact Mike Bishop for information about rentals. Please note that we work around an exhibition schedule so rental times are limited. Also note, PF is a volunteer-run space, so response times vary based on capacity and other activity in the space.

Artist Submissions

Yes, we want to know about you! Note that annual exhibition schedule is curated and scheduled out a minimum
of 1 year in advance. Additionally, Public Functionary prioritizes artists of color and historically marginalized artists. If you would like to send an exhibit proposal or invite us to a studio visit, send an inquiry to our curator, Tricia Heuring: Stay posted to our Facebook page for RFP’s and artist calls.
