Here are three essential tips to remember when planning your event in an art gallery:
1. Be aware of the exhibit content. Art is displayed at the discretion of the gallery owner and you wouldn’t want to host an event for animal lovers during their annual “Fur As Fashion” exhibition.
2. Be mindful of restrictions. Need more space to set up tables and chairs? You may not be allowed to move artwork to make room so be sure to consult with gallery representatives before doing so.
3. Consider insurance costs. Pieces of art are investments and galleries may require proof of insurance for protection in case of an accident or disaster. Explore options they have on hand and make sure your caterers have coverage. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
We hope this inspires you to host your next event at an art gallery. Not only will you feel good about hosting a party in a cool space, you will also contribute to the greater good by supporting local artists, cultural appreciation and creative expression.
