The Fine Print
Securing a reservation: It is necessary to view the space and have a conversation about the type of event you are having to make sure that it is a good fit for our space. After date(s) have been finalized, a contract will be signed with a 50% down payment to hold the agreed upon date(s). The remaining balance must be paid one month before the reservation. Additionally, a refundable damage deposit must be charged one week prior to the event date.
Insurance requirements: All renters must provide a one million/ three million Certificate of Liability Insurance for the evening of the rental. The policy may be obtained online or through any licensed insurance agent. Abacus.net is one resource for event insurance.
Please note: For all event rentals, guests may only use the gallery floor rental area of our space during the event. Walls are not included, and the gallery will most likely have an exhibition up during the event. Please check to see what is scheduled in the gallery when thinking about the date you would like to reserve. Additionally, the studios, building hallways, and entrance areas are not included in the visiting space for guests. The rental contact person is responsible for signing an end of event cleaning checklist, which determines the use or return of the damage deposit. Lastly, all set-up and clean-up must take place within the 6PM - 12AM timeframe (unless extra time was approved in advance).
