Still photography and short smartphone videos are allowed in the free spaces and galleries for non-commercial use only. To protect the objects on display and to ensure the safety of other visitors, there are certain guidelines that must be followed when photographing at the Museum.
Photography and video shoot – media outlets
Recognized media outlets may photograph or film in the galleries with permission of the Executive Director. Once approved, all media members must be accompanied by an appropriate staff member. The Museum must be named as the location and “courtesy of” tag line included when applicable. A copy of the finished product will be kept on file at the Museum
Sketching with pencils and paper is permitted in the natural science galleries. Use of all other materials and/or sketching in the other galleries is not permitted unless by prior arrangement with the curatorial staff.
Exhibition proposals are reviewed on an on-going basis by the Everhart Museum’s Curatorial Department. Use the Exhibition Proposal Form in order to have your proposal considered for display. If you are including work samples, slides, CDs, or other materials, please include a stamped, self addressed envelope if you would like your materials returned. Please do not send original material as the Everhart Museum accepts no responsibility for materials lost or damaged. Please note that the Everhart Museum receives many exhibition proposals each year so we would encourage you to contact a number of venues for your proposed exhibition. For additional information or should you have difficulty downloading the Exhibit Proposal form, please contact the Curatorial Department.
The museum does not provide valuations for work. We recommend that you obtain valuations from reputable sources such as the American Society of Appraisers , Appraisers Association of America, International Society of Appraisers, or at major auction houses.
The museum does not conserve artworks and recommends that you always use reputable, skilled and accredited conservators. The American Institute for the Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIP) is a national organization which registers conservation professionals. The organization provides a free guide to conservation services on its website (aic.standford.edu). The Regional Alliance for Preservation (RAP) is composed of regional conservation and preservation centers and will offer advice and referrals (www.rap-arcc.org).
The museum does occasionally accept donated works for accessioning into the permanent collection. All potential donations are assessed against our collection policy to determine their suitability. Please contact the Curatorial Department if you have any queries or wish to donate a work.
The museum is a not-for-profit institution that does not sell works.
