Press releases

The easiest way to stay informed about Saint Louis Art Museum is to subscribe to the RSS feeds on this press room. You can subscribe to any press room feeds by clicking on the following: exhibition press releases; event press releases; media alerts; books and catalogues; and staff news press releases.

The Saint Louis Art Museum typically does not mail printed press releases. You may receive plain-text press releases via email by contacting Matthew Hathaway at matthew.hathaway@slam.org. So that we only send you what you’d like to receive, please explain in your email if you’re only interested in certain press releases (for example, “art acquisitions” or “news about decorative arts and design” or “information about press previews”).

Reviews copies of books and catalogues

The Saint Louis Art Museum regularly publishes scholarly catalogues about key areas of its collection and about many of the exhibitions it organizes. In addition, the museum’s regularly updated Handbook of the Collection highlights some of the most significant pieces in the Museum’s collection of more than 33,000 works of art.

Photography at the museum

To protect our visitors and the works of art on view in the galleries, the Saint Louis Art Museum restricts photography and filming intended for commercial use. Photographers or camera crews not invited by the museum must first obtain permission to conduct any photo or video shoots in or on museum grounds. Advance notice of at least two weeks is suggested. For more information, review the museum’s camera crew policy.
