Important points to consider:

  • Once you fill out the online form, we may contact you for more information. Then, we will consider whether your event is a good fit for our spaces and contact you within one week of your request. We are not able to accommodate all requests for renting our facility and we reserve the right not to rent for your event.
  • Events that utilize public spaces may not begin until 6pm. Breakfasts in public spaces are permitted provided they end by 9:30am.
  • We do not rent the Museum for artistic productions such as exhibits, book and album debuts, or public performances such as stand-up comedy, concerts, or plays. 
  • Because we are an art museum, we place restrictions on decor (such as no hanging items from the walls), and one of our major priorities is the safety of our artwork and galleries.
  • Your guests will be expected to respect the art by not touching artwork, leaning on or placing drinks on sculpture pedestals, or bringing food and beverages into the exhibition galleries.
