Please do not drop off prospective donations at the Museum. Instead, send an email to Aubrey Hobart, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, at email@example.com. Be sure to describe the object, its provenance (if known), and include images of the work. Once the Museum staff has determined whether the object is appropriate to the collection and mission, you will be contacted about the next steps. Keep in mind that the process can take a couple of months to complete, as all prospective donations require approval from the Museum's Board of Trustees.
