Because of this, all art must be ‘family friendly’. It might appear in someone’s wedding photos or baby shower photos. The Art Center has sole discretion about what it considers ‘family friendly’ and may reject or remove art for any reason. If you are not sure about a piece, simply ask the Exhibitions Coordinator.
