Chazen building, second floor, near the elevator
Tuesday–Friday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
While approximately 1,700 objects are on view in the Chazen galleries at any given time, the permanent collection holds more than 22,000 objects, and most of these artworks are available to examine simply by making an appointment.
The Objects Study Room and the Prints and Drawings Study Room provide a setting where individuals or small groups (generally limited to 20) can closely examine off-view artworks from the collection. There are some exceptions for objects that are too fragile or too large to move.
Please contact the Study Rooms Manager for questions and scheduling assistance.
The Study Rooms are available Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Other visit times may be considered on an individual basis.) The Objects Study Room is always open to the public during museum open hours unless an appointment is in session.
Please email the Study Rooms Manager with date and time requested and the total number of visitors. The Study Room Manager will contact you to confirm the appointment and collect additional information.
Please make requests at least two weeks in advance. Submitting a request does not guarantee the desired date and time, but we will work to accommodate your needs. The artworks requested must be portable, available, and of appropriate size and weight.
Guidelines for selecting objects:
To find an object, search the Chazen Museum’s collection online at http://www.chazen.wisc.edu/explore-art/collections/. Please note that works on loan to the Chazen Museum will not show up in our online database. Some objects may not be available due to condition, display, or loan.
