Propose a gift to the collection
Do you have a work of art, either made by you or another artist that you’d like to share with your community? Consider giving the work to the Hearst for the permanent collection. If the work for some reason doesn’t make sense in the permanent collection but still has value, consider giving the work for the purpose of selling it to support the collection. Send me some digital images of the work and everything you can remember about it. Who made it? Where did they make it? Where did you get it and when? Has it ever been in another collection or exhibited? These are items of interest to us. Email Emily Drennan, Curator/Registrar.
