Adopt a Painting

Adopt a Painting

Adoptions are a special way to celebrate a wedding anniversary, a birthday, the memory of a loved one or simply because you have a connection with a particular picture. 

At the same time, you will be giving vital support to the world’s first purpose built public art Gallery.  

In return for your kind gift, you will receive:

  • A thank you letter from your painting 
  • A little biography about your painting
  • A yearly Gallery e-update from your painting 
  • A Christmas card from your painting 
  • An invite to a special event/opening reception. 
  • Dedication on the painting’s label
  • Dedication listed with the painting on our online Collection  
  • One private talk with curator for adoptions of £10,000+  
  • Opportunity for out of hours visits - for adoptions of £15,000 + dependant on Gallery activities

Adoption gifts range from £2,000 to £25,000+

To adopt a painting or ask any questions please contact at  development@dulwichpicturegallery.org.uk or call us on 020 8299 8724 

Please note that adoptions up to £5,000 will last for 5 years and adoptions of £10,000+ will last for 10 years. 

Should the painting not be on display at any time, its dedication will remain on the website.  

Adoption is non-exclusive and does not override previous supporter credits, nor does it preclude future support for a painting.
