What are the artists’ expectations and responsibilities?

Once the art is selected to be put on display, the artist must meet with the director of the center in person and go through a checklist with them regarding the items below:

  • The artist agrees that the CSI may publish and disclose information about them and their work.

  • Art is hung at its own risk. The CSI is not liable to what happens to the hanging of artwork in the center, whether it falls, in case of theft, or any other scenario.
  • CSI Lounge is based off of an art hanging system that works only with two-dimensional artwork. Framed art is hung on the back and matted art is hung through nails.
