Q: What is the price for an event rental?

A: Event rental pricing varies based on duration, use of space, and event needs. The best way to assess pricing is to fill out the rental contact form so the event coordinator can email the rental agreement and brochure. These items will clarify pricing, provide extended information, and exemplify what the art center has to offer.

Q: How does event booking at SBDAC work?

A: First, contact us via the rental contact form. Then, our event coordinator will reach out to you via email or phone to discuss your event rental and date availability. If your requested date is available, you’ll receive a digital copy of the rental agreement and brochure so you best assess what rental packages or items would suit your needs. Once you’ve looked over the rental agreement, let the event coordinator know you’d like to come in for a tour and meeting with G3 Catering. Together, you can come to some agreements about event pricing and details.

Q: Does SBDAC allows outside vendors, alcohol, or catering?

A: Outside vendors are allowed for items like linens, tables, and decor. The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center does have certain items available for rent. These items are listed on the rental agreement. The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is fully licensed and insured to purchase and serve alcohol. Therefore, all alcohol must be purchased via the art center. G3 Catering is the in-house caterer for the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center. Food pricing is determined via discussion between the client and G3 Catering. Please contact the art center via the rental contact form to learn more about catering options.

Q: Is there a difference in rental pricing based on season?

A: There is no difference in pricing based on season. However, keep in mind that dates from November – April fill up quickly.
