Image Procurement for Smithsonian

We are pleased to be working closely with staff at the Smithsonian on image procurement for the Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opens to the public in late-summer 2016. We are soliciting images, and negotiating terms and fees for works selected for inclusion in ten of the museum’s permanent galleries. This is an exciting challenge for us – and great opportunity to explore resources available at repositories throughout the nation that document varied aspects of African American experience.
