Gifts of Art
The San Diego Museum of Art welcomes donations of works of art that advance our mission and augment or expand our existing collections. All donations must undergo curatorial review before being accepted. The first step in the donation process is to mail or email photographs of the objects accompanied by detailed descriptions and how they were obtained. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or mail the materials to:
The San Diego Museum of Art
P.O. Box 122107
San Diego, CA 92112
After receiving your information, your materials will be circulated among the curatorial team to determine if the items are appropriate for addition to the Museum's Permanent Collection. After review and discussion, a representative from the curatorial department will contact you with our decision.
If the object is accepted for the Collection and the donor wishes to declare it as a tax deduction, the donor is responsible for obtaining an appraisal.
Due to space and staff limitations, we may not be able to accept every quality donation offered to the Museum.
