Rights and Reproductions

Photography and Video

We ask that visitors not take any kind of photography in the first floor galleries. Copyright issues and other regulations prevent us from being able to grant permission. Visitors are welcome to take photographs in the second floor permanent collection galleries (Gallery 15 excluded) unless designated with a "no photography" sign. Photographs are only allowed for personal non-distributional, non-commercial use. Flashes, tripods, monopods and video cameras are prohibited.
