Dear <Name>,

The <insert museum> is a member of the Art Museum Image Consortium (AMICO). AMICO is a not-for-profit association of leading <North American> art museums whose goal is to enable educational use of their collections by establishing an extensive, digital fine arts library that will be available to university, public library and kindergarten through grade 12 education communities.

Usage rights for The AMICO Library are granted to authorized users for designated uses, such as for faculty, staff, students, and researchers. The distribution system is secure, requiring authorization from a subscribing educational institution before access is granted. As part of the agreement, the works may not be published, placed on a public web site, or otherwise redistributed without specific and separate permissions from the copyright holder or the authorized representative.

We are requesting permission to include the following work(s) of art as part of the (insert museum) contribution to The AMICO Library:


All contributions will be accompanied by a caption which lists artists, title, date(s), dimensions, medium, and museum credit line. In regard to the images, there will be no cropping or superimposing of type.

Please sign at the bottom of this page to indicate your agreement and return it by mail or fax. You can learn more about the project by visiting its public web site at If you have any additional questions, please feel free to call me at <insert phone number>.

Thank you for your consideration of this request.





I grant permission to (insert museum) to reproduce the work(s) in The AMICO Library.
