Submission Policy

The Nasher Museum of Art does not accept unsolicited materials (slides, prints, CDs, DVDs, etc.) from artists or their agents. The museum does not set up appointments with artists to review their work at their request. If unsolicited materials are sent to the museum without the artist or agent’s prior knowledge of museum policy, the museum is not obligated to return materials that have been submitted without a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Under no circumstances may artists send or drop off original works. The museum cannot take responsibility for the safety of original works.
