The Santa Fe Gallery Association is not responsible for any loss or damage that may occur as a result of any actions related to the curation of artwork for the Zozobra project. Every effort will be made to protect and respect all artworks on exhibition, however we cannot guarantee that the process will be flawless.


Please check with your business insurance carrier. Each gallery and artist is responsible for their own insurance coverage throughout this initiative. Should a loss occur including but not limited to theft, irreparable damage, etc. the artist and representative gallery will be jointly and severally responsible for a sum of $2,500.


For your protection, artwork will be signed in and out on the delivery and pick up dates. The work may be exhibited in sponsoring galleries until received for group exhibitions.
