Please keep in mind, the Collins C. Diboll Gallery may not be the right setting for certain events. The primary role of the gallery is as an exhibition space. Event sponsors must realize that gallery exhibitions change several times a year, and that the configuration of the space changes with them. It is therefore recommended that event sponsors make a point of checking the space several days before their scheduled event, to ensure that their plans are compatible with the current exhibition. Exhibition curators will not tailor their efforts to accommodate receptions and events, however the space just in front of the kitchen's roll up window is usually a good place for food and beverage tables, as access to restrooms is also gained through that area.
The College of Music and Fine Arts is responsible for programming the gallery exhibitions, and therefore reserves the right to refuse future use of the gallery to event sponsors who have abused these guidelines and/or during whose events damage to works of art on display has been incurred.
If you agree to the Diboll Gallery terms proceed to form.
