Fees and Charges
To reserve a date, patrons must pay 50% of the rental fee and submit a signed rental application form. The remaining balance of the rental fee and the security (damage) deposit is due 60 days (2 months) prior to the event, along with a signed contract.

For reservations made less than 60 days (2 months) notice, 50% of the rental fee will be due to secure the date, along with a signed rental application form. The remainder of the rental fee and security deposit will be due within five (5) business days along with a signed contract.
The rental fee covers a rental for 6 hours. The main gallery rentals are from 5pm to 11pm only.
