Qualified scholars may request to see works not currently on view by appointment, depending on staff availability. Appointments with the Registrar should be made by email at least one month in advance. A formal letter of interest should be emailed to HMSGcollections@si.edu.
Collections storage improvements are underway for 2016. Due to construction in collection spaces, there will be limited access to artworks and archives files in the Hirshhorn collection throughout the year, and a possible delay in processing loan requests. Please contact the registration office at HMSGcollections@si.edu for information about accessing our collections.
