Gifts of Art Policy

Printable PDF

When artwork is offered to the Fort Vancouver Regional Library District (FVRL) as a gift, FVRL works with the Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation (Foundation) to determine if the donation is in the library’s interest.

The FVRL Foundation Director and the FVRL District Executive Director (or their designees) will undertake an art review process prior to accepting the gift, if there is an expectation to display or store the work(s). The art review process is not needed if the artwork is intended to be sold or auctioned by the FVRL Foundation.

All donated artwork will be owned by the FVRL Foundation. Use of artwork, such as location and length of display, shall be determined by FVRL.
