If we accept a donated artwork, you'll be able to deduct the value of the work per IRS guidelines.
Please note: we cannot accept unsolicited works of art. In addition, the Asian Art Museum generally does not purchase artwork or accept loaned artworks from private collections. IRS rules prohibit us from appraising artworks; we recommend the American Society of Appraisers and Bonhams. We are also unable to offer assistance in researching private collections, although our research library is open by appointment.
Please also note that due to the high volume of submissions received, we are not able to respond to all inquiries.
