Institutional Affiliate Loans

Looking for loans for individuals? Use this form.

This alternative is intended for large organizations that can circulate programs to extensive audiences, such as school systems, instructional resource centers, museums and art centers, health-care facilities, libraries, and public and instructional television stations. Such organizations act as affiliate distributors to provide their audiences more immediate access to our free-loan extension programs.

The selected programs are placed on long-term loan—usually three years and renewable—and are made available for noncommercial television presentation. This option is intended only for organizations that support active distribution systems.

Organizations with noncommercial television capability may request permission to broadcast, provided after completion of a written license agreement. Programs may not be broadcast, reproduced, or transferred to another medium or format without special license from the National Gallery of Art.

We now also offer limited online or digital use to institutions for presentation over a noncommercial (educational, public) server that delivers media on demand, online through a password-protected environment or closed server. If such permission is requested for online or digital use, the licensee guarantees that no still-frame capturing of images, duplication of images, or excerpting of motion footage can be made from DVD copies, downloaded, or used for any other purpose than viewing.

If you wish to participate as an affiliate distributor, or if you would like to broadcast programs, please contact us to request an application:
