Frequently asked questions: 

Please contact Mattie Wethington, mwethington@discovernewfields.org, for all media requests.

I am a journalist planning a visit to Newfields. How do I obtain media credentials to visit the Museum, a special exhibition, or a program? 
Please contact Mattie Wethington at mwethington@discovernewfields.org for media credentials.

How do I request a media kit for my visit?
For your convenience, all of the Museum's standard press materials, including fact sheets, press releases, and images for download, are available in the online Press/News section. If you would like a press kit with hard copies of any of these materials during your visit or have need of additional information, please contact Mattie Wethington at mwethington@discovernewfields.org.

May I preview exhibitions prior to their public opening or visit the Museum when it is closed to the public?
Newfields regularly holds media preview days before special exhibitions open to the public. Additionally, the Museum will work with journalists to grant early access to exhibitions on alternative dates whenever possible. The Museum can only accommodate special requests for access during closed hours on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Mattie Wethington at mwethington@discovernewfields.org to arrange a visit.

How do I arrange an interview with a member of the Newfields staff?
Please contact Mattie Wethington at mwethington@discovernewfields.org.

May I take photographs or video footage in the Museum?
Please review our Photography Policies. If you are a member of the media and have a special request, such as photographing or filming works to which Newfields does not hold a copyright (i.e. contemporary works or works in special exhibitions), or if your photography needs require the use of flash lighting or external photography equipment, you must be accompanied by a member of the Newfields Communications staff. Please contact Mattie Wethington at mwethington@discovernewfields.org to make arrangements in advance. If you are interested in taking photos or video footage for commercial purposes, please send your request to permission@discovernewfields.org.

Please note: Out of an abundance of caution and for the safety and well-being of our guests and community, the Newfields campus is temporarily closed, in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
