Program/Event Partnerships

Due the space constraints of the facility, the small size of the Maier staff, and concerns about the safety of the art housed here, the Maier is not available for private use or rental by groups outside the College community.  However, the Maier is willing to host partnership programs or events, at the discretion of the Maier’s director. Requested programs or events must meet both of the following two requirements in order to be considered by the Maier director:

  1. Program/event topic or theme must directly relate to the Maier’s mission, collection of American art, special exhibition(s), and/or educational programming. (Programs/events connected with Randolph College programs/departments will also be considered).
  2. Program/event must appeal to and include the RC community, Maier constituents, and/or the general public. Private events that exclude any or all of these groups will not be considered.
