Frequently Asked Questions
Do large groups need to make an appointment to visit an exhibition?
We recommend for groups of 10 or more visitors that you schedule an appointment for a guided tour. Tours can be pre-arranged either during our public hours or at another time. Please contact us at email@example.com to schedule a tour.
How can I submit my artwork or proposal for review?
Vincent Price Art Museum welcomes submissions from artists and curators to be considered for exhibition. In general, exhibitions are planned two years in advance. Preferred materials are digital and photographic prints, and/or compact disc. Please include a cover letter and biography. Do not include original or valuable materials. You can submit materials via email or by regular mail; submissions MUST include a self-addressed stamped envelope for return if return is required. Please note that any unsolicited materials submitted shall be done so at the risk of the sender. VPAM is not responsible for the return, loss or damage to unsolicited materials.
How can I obtain an appraisal for a work of art that I own?
As a policy and practice, all museum staff are ethically and legally unable to provide authentication and appraisal services. A certified appraiser or reputable auction house should carry out appraisals and authentication. If you have something you would like to have valued or authenticated please try one of these resources:

I have an artwork that is designated as being part of the “Vincent Price Collection.” Is the Vincent Price Collection affiliated with the Vincent Price Art Museum?
The Vincent Price Art Museum is not affiliated with the Vincent Price Collection. As a business venture in the 1960s, Vincent Price worked with Sears, Roebuck and Co. to make artwork available for purchase in designated stores. Vincent Price assembled a large collection of fine art objects that were sold over a period of nearly ten years; these artworks were part of a retail sales program noted as the “Vincent Price Collection.”
