Image Policy

Policy for Rights & Reproductions
Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin

In general, the Blanton approves only scholarly, educational, and non-profit projects for use of images in the collection. Sometimes commercial projects are approved, if they are educational or scholarly in nature. Each request is reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

All requests to publish artwork from the Blanton Museum of Art’s collection must be in writing, either by email or mail. The letters should include contact information for the requesting organization or individual, as much detail about the artwork being requested as possible, the title and author of the publication, publisher information (including whether it is a non-profit or commercial publisher), the type of image required (if a digital image, please provide the format, image size, and dpi needed), whether the image is an interior or cover placement, the print run, and the deadline for receiving the image.

The applicant will be notified of applicable fees, which will depend on their status as a non-profit or commercial organization, and on the type of image they require. A minimum of 2 weeks notice is required to process the request. For a list of our most up-to-date reproduction fees, click HERE.

An invoice and the museum’s Permission to Reproduce form are prepared and sent to the applicant. Payment (by check or credit card) and the completed Permission to Reproduce form must be received prior to sending the image out (digital images are usually sent by an image transfer site).
