Gifts of Art

Thank you for considering the Chazen Museum of Art as a future potential home for your art. As an accredited member of the American Alliance of Museums, the museum follows a selective policy for art acquisitions, which supports our teaching mission and ensures thoughtful and dynamic growth of the permanent collection. The museum’s director and curatorial staff carefully consider each potential gift of art, taking into account criteria such as artistic excellence, the potential for teaching and learning, relevance to the permanent collection, the physical condition of the object, and the museum’s ability to care for and activate the work in perpetuity.

Please submit a form as a first step in the gift offer process. A member of the curatorial team will respond to your inquiry. Please keep in mind that the entire donation process may take six months or more to complete. If your inquiry is time-sensitive, please let us know.
