Can the Gallery appraise my artwork or artifacts?
The Grey staff does not authenticate or perform appraisals of works of art or artifacts for the public. We suggest that you consult a certified appraiser or auction house. You may also contact the Appraisers Association of America to get more information on certain types of appraisals.
I’m an artist. Can I send you information about my work?

I have an idea for an exhibition. Can I send it to you?
We are currently not accepting exhibition proposals. Please visit the “Submission Guidelines” page for more information.

If you arrive carrying a bag or backpack larger than 11 x 14 in. we will ask you to check it in with the front desk.

You may text or tweet during your visit. However, please set your phone to vibrate and take all voice calls outside of the galleries.
Is filming allowed in the museum?
No. Filming is not allowed inside of the Grey.
I’d like to donate a work of art to the Grey. What should I do?
Given our limited storage, the Grey Art Gallery does not actively acquire or accept many works into the NYU Art Collection. Furthermore, donations that are accepted usually complement the strengths of the NYU collections such as Downtown New York or Modern Asian and Middle Eastern Art. To submit art for consideration, supply a digital photograph and basic information about the work (title, artist, year, dimensions, acquisition history) to email@example.com. The Grey cannot advise collectors regarding the value of their artwork nor can the Grey’s staff provide authentication services.
Can I give to the Grey?
Absolutely! The “Support” page explains different ways to give to the Grey.
