Access to images of objects in the collection of the Georgia Museum of Art and rights to reproduce those images are handled by the registrar for rights to reproduction. To obtain photographic materials or acquire permission to reproduce images, please read the information below and contact the registrar for rights to reproduction via the email address or fax number listed.
Photographs may be ordered for study use, personal use, lecture use or approved reproduction purposes. Please be aware that only a portion of the thousands of works in the museum’s collection have been photographed; therefore images you request may or may not be available in the format you prefer.
For objects that have been photographed, the Georgia Museum of Art offers images in one or more of the following formats: 35mm color slide, 8x10-inch black-and-white print, 4x5-inch color transparency (available for rental only).
Requests for fulfilling orders in less than 4 weeks will be considered rush orders and an additional surcharge of $50 will apply.
Due to construction on our Phase II expansion, there is a moratorium on all requests for new photography (objects that have not yet been photographed) until further notice. The registrar for rights to reproduction will continue to accommodate requests for existing photography (objects that have already been photographed).
A fee of $5 for postage and handling will apply to each order. Your photographs will be mailed to you via USPS Priority Mail immediately upon receipt of prepayment. If you prefer that your materials be sent via UPS or FedEx, you must supply your account number to the registrar for rights to reproduction.
The University of Georgia requires prepayment of all fees before photographs may be released. After you submit your request for photography and/or reproduction rights, the registrar for rights to reproduction will provide you with a schedule of fees for your particular project and send you an invoice. Direct all payments to the registrar for rights to reproduction, who will send out your order immediately upon receipt of payment. The Georgia Museum of Art accepts checks or money orders in US Dollars only or credit card payments.
The Georgia Museum of Art can grant the permissions requested only to the extent of its ownership of the rights relating to the request. Certain works of art, as well as the photographs of those works of art, may be protected by copyright, trademark or related interests not owned by the Georgia Museum of Art. The responsibility of ascertaining whether any such rights exist and for obtaining all other necessary permissions remains with the applicant. Written notification of permissions granted by other copyright holders must be submitted in advance to GMOA.
