The Santa Barbara Museum of Art aims to present significant and engaging art to the public. Opportunities for inclusion in our exhibition program are very limited and highly competitive.
We do not review unsolicited materials sent by artists and their representatives, as the administrative time needed to properly review such materials is beyond the Museum's capacity. For this reason we also do not set up appointments with artists to review their work at their request.
If unsolicited materials are sent to the Museum without the artist or agent's prior knowledge of Museum policy, please note that we are not responsible for such materials nor obligated to return them.
We apologize for any dissatisfaction that this policy may cause.
