The Sheen Center is now accepting rental inquiries with a limited capacity for consideration. As the health and safety of all is our top priority, we will need to assess each submission carefully in terms of maintaining strict safety protocols, in addition to our standard curatorial process. While current realities limit our ability to accommodate all rental requests, we are glad to be slowly opening our doors for business with an eye toward fuller operations as soon as it is safe and feasible to do so.
