Art Installation Guidelines & Resources

We offer in-person assistance with art installation via appointment. These appointments are necessary if you are installing media equipment from the Media Center. To make an appointment with our Exhibitions Services Lead Specialist, please email with details about your installation, including when and where you will need assistance. Though we are sometimes available for walk-ins, we can't guarantee availability. If you have a site-specific installation planned, or need advice on how to install your work, please contact us well ahead of time! 

Below are several resources outlining preferred methods and procedures for installing artwork and media equipment. These are a great starting point for installing artwork if you do not require assistance from us.
