The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation (the “Foundation”) provides this Web site (the “Site”) in support of its charitable and educational mission to further the understanding and appreciation of art by the public. It supplements the outstanding art collections and educational programs we offer onsite at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, the Peggy Guggenheim, the Deutsche Guggenheim, the Guggenheim Hermitage Museum, and through related alliances around the world. We encourage you to use the Site as a research and information tool, subject to the specific terms and conditions of use (the “Terms and Conditions of Use”) set forth here.
ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
BY ACCESSING THIS WEB SITE, YOU ACCEPT WITHOUT LIMITATION OR QUALIFICATION THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE. THE FOUNDATION MAY REVISE THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE AT ANY TIME, BY WHICH REVISIONS SHALL BIND YOU. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, PLEASE EXIT THE SITE NOW AND REFRAIN FROM FURTHER USE.
The Foundation has created and compiled the Site with careful regard for accuracy and integrity of scholarship. We believe that the context in which we present material is important to understanding it, and we will improve, modify, enhance, and expand the Site on a continuous basis. Thus, while we recognize that the digital nature of the Site may allow you to use subsets of this material, we urge you to consider the complete context for maximum appreciation and accuracy.
PROTECTION OF PRIVACY
The names, titles, building images, trademarks, service marks, and logos that appear on the Site are registered and unregistered marks of the Foundation, including but not limited to SOLOMON R. GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM, GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM, GUGGENHEIM, GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM BILBAO, PEGGY GUGGENHEIM COLLECTION, GUGGENHEIM HERMITAGE MUSEUM, DEUTSCHE GUGGENHEIM, THE EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR BUILDING IMAGES OF THE SOLOMON R.

The trademarks of third parties may also appear on the Site from time to time; you may not use these trademarks without prior, written permission of their respective owners. You acknowledge and agree that nothing on the Site grants, expressly or implicitly, by estoppel or otherwise, any right or license to use any of the Guggenheim Trademarks or may be construed to mean that the Foundation has authority to grant any right or license on behalf of any third party trademark owner.
The images, artworks, text, data, files, audio, and video clips, illustrations, designs, and documentation (in whole or in part, the “Content”), which appear on the Site, as well as the collection, arrangement, and assembly of the Content (the “Compilation”), are either proprietary to the Foundation or used in accordance with applicable law or third party consents.
You may not reproduce, distribute, display, transmit, modify, perform, adapt, generate derivative works, or otherwise use the Content or the Compilation without the prior, written permission of the Foundation unless your use qualifies as (1) Fair Use or another legislative exemption, (2) Special Permission for Educators, or (3) Press Use, all of which are further described below.
FAIR USE AND OTHER EXEMPTIONS
The Foundation does not object to your reproduction, distribution, display, transmission, performance, and use of the Content and/or Compilation if done in accordance with 17 U.S.C. §107 (“Fair Use”), 17 U.S.C. §110 (the Teach Act), or other applicable limitations and exemptions laid forth in the U.S. Copyright Act and related laws.
Unless otherwise noted on the Web page, no express permission is required by the Foundation for use that falls within Fair Use or another legislative exemption, but two conditions apply: 1) No modifications may be made as to the integrity or attribution of the Content and Compilation; and 2) All copies of the Content and Compilation must bear accurate identifying information, including proprietary collection information, credit lines, copyright and trademark notices, and a citation to the Site: www.guggenheim.org.
BEYOND FAIR USE: SPECIAL PERMISSION FOR EDUCATORS
The Foundation recognizes that not every educational use qualifies for Fair Use or another legislative exemption. In order to further support the work of teachers and other educators, in accordance with our own charitable and educational mission, we therefore consent to the following additional uses of our Site:
Subject specifically to the rights of third parties (which are entirely the responsibility of the user), the Foundation consents to the reproduction, distribution, display, transmission, performance, and use of the Content and Compilation by individual teachers and other educators if done for the limited purpose of classroom or workshop instruction (including online instruction) in a school, museum, or other educational organization; provided, however, said organization is a not-for-profit corporation and provided, further, that the Content and Compilation are not sold or otherwise commercially distributed. This provision does not apply to corporations who package, prepare, or sell educational materials for teachers and educators. Unless otherwise noted on the Web page, no express permission is required by the Foundation for a Limited Educational Exception, but two conditions apply: 1) No modifications may be made as to the integrity or attribution of the Content and Compilation; and 2) All copies of the Content and Compilation must bear accurate identifying information, including proprietary collection information, credit lines, copyright and trademark notices, and a citation to the Site: www. guggenheim.org.
The Foundation provides a dedicated page on the Site for members of the press. See Press Page. Except where noted otherwise, photographs, images, press releases and articles (the “Press Materials”) that appear on this page may be downloaded, reproduced and published (and in the case of text-based materials, translated) by members of the press for the sole purpose of creating or supporting timely news stories related to the Foundation and the Press Materials in newspapers, magazines, web publications, television or other media. Use of the Press Materials for any other purpose requires the additional, prior permission of the Foundation and may also require the additional, prior permission of third party rights holders, which permission is the￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼ sole responsibility of the press user. Press Materials may not be downloaded reproduced or published by commercial stock houses or archives under any circumstances.
To the extent you choose to use subsets of information from the Press Materials, you agree that your use will not compromise their original context, accuracy and integrity. Photographs and other images must be reproduced in their entirety; you may not crop or otherwise alter them. All Press Materials must include the identifying information provided by the Foundation, including proprietary collection information, credit lines, copyright and trademark notices, if any, and a citation to the Site: www.guggenheim.org.
If your proposed use of the Guggenheim Trademarks, Images, or Site Content does not meet the conditions for Fair Use or another legislative exemption, Special Permission for Educators or Press Use, you must request and obtain express permission from the Foundation. Please be advised that the Foundation is selective in granting such permission, and when we do grant permission we generally impose a fee. All fees collected by the Foundation are used to further the Foundation’s educational programs and not-for-profit mission.
