How can I get my work into the National Collection?

The NAGB accepts artworks into the collection on the recommendation of its acquisitions committee. The artwork may be acquired by various means, such as gift, grant, deed, or purchase.

For Collectors

Is work for sale at the museum?

Despite our name, the NAGB is a museum, not a commercial gallery. The work on display is not for sale. On some occassions, an artist or their estate may be contacted with an inquiry and the NGAB may facilitate the exchange.

How would I go about donating a piece to the museum?

Donations are reviewed through the same process as all forms of acquisitions. Potential donors are asked to contact the Chief Curator and/or Director who will gather the information and discuss the potential of the work with the Acquisitions Committee. The committee will decide whether to accept the work into the collection and the terms.
