Traveling Exhibits

The Navy Art Collection traveling exhibition program is designed to make the artwork accessible to as many people as possible through loans and exhibits to museums and institutions throughout the United States. Borrowers wishing to exhibit Navy Art are generally evaluated in terms of their service and accessibility to the public. Exhibits can be borrowed for as little as one month or up to six months (or longer depending on the medium and availability of the artwork) to institutions that meet eligibility requirements. There is no participation fee and the only costs are transportation via a fine arts shipper and insurance to cover the value of the artwork while off government property. For further information or to initiate a loan request (to include the dates of the loan and exhibit of interest,) please contact the loans manager at Navy Art Collection; 805 Kidder Breese St. SE, Washington Navy Yard, D.C. 20374-5060, by telephone at (202) 433-3815 or via e-mail at
