Ensure that works of art are covered by insurance; and
Create accurate records of ownership, deacquisition and art displays for archival purposes.


Policy Statement

Art work may be loaned, donated or purchased by the college to be displayed temporarily, on a rotating basis or permanently, at any Lane campus location. Works of art donated or purchased by the college shall be documented, maintained and stored appropriately, and repaired as necessary. Insurance coverage for owned and loaned work shall be provided subject to standard policy exclusions, limitations and conditions.


This policy applies to all art work owned by, loaned to, displayed or stored by the college in established gallery spaces and common areas such as but not limited to building entryways and halls, meeting rooms, the cafeteria, and outdoor spaces. Student art work in a juried exhibition is included in the scope of this policy; student art work displayed in association with a course is not included.
