Art Museum Bans Sketching

By on January 6, 2011 in Paper, Pencils & Accessories


The M.H. de Young Memorial Museum, a public and city-owned San Francisco art gallery, bans the use of pencils and Paper at special exhibitions. Sketching remains allowed in the museum’s permanent exhibitions.

The ban is the exception rather than the rule. Pencils, for example, are allowed everywhere in New York’s Museum of Modern Art and are even sold at the ticket counter of Berkely Art Museum.
