Entrust Your Art to The Carle

The Carle is grateful for contributions of original art to our Permanent Collection. Our holdings now number over 12,000 works that we regularly exhibit and loan. To learn more about our collection, see Permanent Collection.

We are honored by collectors, artists, and families who have decided to place their valued works here for preservation, presentation, and celebration. Our collections committee reviews all potential donations to ensure we are the best home for the work.

If you are interested in donating a work of art, please direct your inquiry to Ellen Keiter, Chief Curator, at or 413-559-6320.
