Press Visits

Members of the press planning to visit the Museum as part of their coverage may request admission tickets by contacting Kathy Sharpless at ksharplessisgm.org. Prior arrangements must be made in order to accommodate press visits.

Photography and video by members of the media must be coordinated in advance through Marketing and Communications. Requests for photo and film shoots must be submitted in writing to Kathy Sharpless at ksharplessisgm.org at least two weeks before the requested shoot date. Please note that the Museum cannot accommodate “location” or background photography for fashion shoots or commercial endeavors.

Advertising and Vendor Inquiries

The Gardner Museum currently works with many advertising and printer representatives. New vendors are asked to mail media kits and/or samples to the Creative Services Manager at fdiverisgm.org for review before sending unsolicited e-mails or calling.
