Selection

The Librarian for Visual Arts, in consultation with the Director of Communications and External Relations as needed, is responsible for vetting art exhibition proposals.

Security and Liability

Bird Library will provide reasonable security measures for exhibitions. The Libraries accept no responsibility for damage to, or loss of, art pieces at any time while on display or while being transported to or from the Bird Library. The contributor must complete an Exhibit Release Form before the display is installed. Syracuse University does not provide insurance for student artwork on exhibition. If the artist wishes to insure artwork, it is the artist's responsibility to do so.

All artwork must be ready to display (i.e. mounted, framed, etc). Exhibitors will also be responsible for providing ready-to-mount labels and delivering the artwork to and from Bird Library. The exhibitor will be responsible for the hanging and arrangement of all materials in the gallery space. If help is needed, please contact Ann Skiold at saskiold@syr.edu. Artwork will be returned only to the lender or duly authorized agent or representative with proper written permission.
