Our Visitor Promise

The Stanley Museum of Art strives to ensure that every visitor, volunteer, staff member, and work of art is treated with respect and dignity.

We promise all visitors, volunteers, and staff will feel welcome, safe, and accepted.

To fulfill our promise we will not tolerate:

  • Offensive, abusive or threatening language or behavior towards any person on museum premises or attending a museum event
    • This includes insults or other abuse directed at someone based on their race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, ability level, gender identity, sexual orientation, or national origin
  • Fighting, provoking a fight, or engaging in disorderly or boisterous conduct
  • Wearing or otherwise displaying profane, obscene or injurious language, texts or graphics on clothing or elsewhere on the person (including visible tattoos)
  • Hindering the use of the museum by others, or the ability of volunteers and staff to perform their duties, including:
    • Blocking passage or easy access to museum areas, facilities, and equipment.
    • Purposely blocking access to works of art on display or intentionally obstructing others’ views

The museum reserves the right to refuse admission to or eject any person whose behavior the museum deems to oppose these values or other museum guidelines.
