There are three galleries available in the UN Visitors’ Lobby for exhibits open to the public, ranging in size from 110 linear feet (34 m) to 1400 square feet (130 m2). Space is reserved after a full proposal in line with the Exhibits Committee Guidelines has been submitted and approved.
Anyone can submit an exhibit proposal. However, proposals submitted by non-UN entities must be accompanied by a letter from a UN department/office, fund or programme, organization of the United Nations system or a Permanent or Observer Mission formally endorsing the exhibit and its content. All exhibits, regardless of the supporting entity, must be reviewed by the relevant UN office specialized in the topic.
There is no rental fee to use the gallery space. Exhibitors are responsible for all other related costs, including production, installation, promotion, and an opening/event reception (optional). Costs vary depending on the scope of the exhibit and therefore can only be estimated after a complete proposal has been submitted and approved.
