Gifts of Art
By giving a work of art, it ensures that a cherished work will be in the best possible care and enjoyed by the public. Works of art may be donated during your lifetime or by bequest. Donating artwork, a form of tangible personal property, requires special attention. Although a work may be artistically significant, it may not be appropriate for the Museum's collection.
