Unfortunately, the museum is not available for rental.

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?

The Grey Art Gallery does not accept unsolicited artist submissions, and we cannot respond to or return unsolicited material.

I have an idea for an exhibition. Can I send it to you?

The Grey Art Gallery will review proposals from curators and art institutions. However, before submitting a proposal, please keep in mind that given our staff size, the academic calendar, and limited resources, the Grey hosts only three exhibitions a year, one of which we originate ourselves, and is typically booked three years in advance. Additionally, the Grey shows relatively few solo exhibitions of contemporary artists since there are so many New York venues dedicated to this purpose. Although our shows are certainly diverse, they tend to be more historical in nature and are usually presented in collaboration with NYU faculty and staff.

Please take time to view our website, look into previously held exhibitions, and consider our mission before submitting your proposal.

To submit a proposal, please mail the following items to the Grey Art Gallery’s address.

  • A written statement
  • A printed sample of images to be included in the exhibition (no digital files, please)
  • Budget
  • Space requirements

Mail to:

Due to the high volume of proposals we receive, it may take up to six months to respond to your submission. We cannot return any proposal materials.

Are large bags permitted on site?

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.

Is the Grey handicap accessible?

The Gallery is accessible to people with disabilities. If you anticipate problems using the Grey’s few entrance steps, please call 212.998.6780 and we will be happy to make arrangements.

Are mobile devices permitted in the galleries?

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 greyartgallery@nyu.edu. The Grey cannot advise collectors regarding the value of their artwork nor can the Grey’s staff provide authentication services.
