Accepted work may be hand delivered to Attleboro Arts Museum. All shipped work must be sent to the Museum in a reusable carton and with prepaid return shipping documents enclosed. We are under no obligation to return work that does not arrive with return prepaid shipping papers. It will become the property of MGNE as will unclaimed hand-delivered work. We will send detailed shipping instructions to accepted artists.

The Attleboro Arts Museum will insure all work during the exhibition period. Exhibiting artists may be required to complete loan forms and condition reports prior to the work being installed. There is a $500.00 deductible on a per occurrence basis that will not be assumed by the museum for the piece on loan. The maximum insurance value that will be covered is $2000. All work will be handled with respect and care.
