Attleboro Arts Museum Gallery Conduct
Please help the Attleboro Arts Museum protect the works of art on view in our Ottmar and Community Galleries by following the few ‘rules of engagement’ listed below. We appreciate your help in keeping the art on display safe.
Of note: Sketching of exhibited art is always permitted – and encouraged.
1. Do not touch works of art. Your touch may not seem like much, but even the slightest contact can damage the surface of a painting or drawing and even rust or discolor metal and stone.
2. Keep a safe distance between you and each work of art. This helps to avoid accidental touching or bumping and is very appreciated by exhibiting artists.
3. No leaning on walls or cases (either to write or for physical support). This helps keep works of art hung on the walls or displayed in cases safe. Feel free to sit on the floor as you talk, write, or draw during visits.
4. No food or drink is allowed in the galleries unless a special event is being held. The art in the museum will provide you plenty of foods for thought!
5. Running, pushing, and roughhousing are not allowed in the Museum. Appropriate museum behavior is necessary to avoid accidentally bumping into and damaging works of art or each other.
6. Photography. Please ask a gallery attendant or our receptionist if photography is permitted.
The Attleboro Arts Museum’s Exhibitions are ONLY on our first level unless a special event is being held.
Thank you for your cooperation.
