Thank you for your interest in donating art to The Riverside Art Museum’s (RAM's) permanent collection. Though RAM has some areas of specialty in our collection we are willing to consider any work from noteworthy artists.
In order to consider your donation of artwork(s), please submit a written proposal to be considered by our curatorial staff and collections committee.
What to include in a proposal:
Once we receive your complete proposal, RAM staff will carefully consider your offer and make a decision based on criteria, such as: its relevance; how well it fits with plans for the RAM Collection; whether it is in good condition; and whether we can adequately care for it in the future. Not all donation can be accepted.
Depending on the unique considerations of each proposal, it can take anywhere from three to six months for us to respond.
Please do not bring objects to the Museum. We will be in touch if we need to view the item(s) in person. Note that we cannot offer appraisals nor can we recommend appraisers. For these questions, please visit the American Society of Appraisers website or call ASA at 800-272-8258.
