Policies Related to Art Placement 

  • The Art Advisory Board (AAB) advises on the selection and placement of art on campus. The AAB may reserve certain art works for display in specific places or for use in exhibits. It may also place restrictions on displays based on the security, condition or cultural patrimony status of the art.
  • In the case of multiple requests for the same art work, the Art Advisory Board will be consulted.
  • Art must be adequately framed or otherwise securely prepared for display before it can be made available. 
  • Environmental conditions (for example, excessive direct sunlight, humidity or heat) and/or security concerns may prevent displays in some locations.
  • Art hung in offices and other semi-private locations must be signed for by the requester. The requester must agree to abide by the terms of the Placement Agreement.
