General Information & Guidelines

The Saint Louis Art Museum, while a public museum, must restrict photography and filming intended for commercial use to protect the works of art in our collection and avoid any possible infringement of artist/copyright owner rights. It is important that all groups planning filming or photography at the Museum understand and follow this policy to ensure the safety of our collection, as well as the experience of our guests.

Photographers or camera crews hired by an outlet (private company, institution representatives, media) or exhibitors participating at private events must first obtain permission from the Media Relations Office to conduct any photo or video shoots in or on Museum grounds. Areas that will be used for filming interviews, b-roll, or still photography must be determined prior to arrival. The Museum may not be able to fill all media requests. Advance notice of at least two weeks is suggested.
