Rental Guidelines

Renter shall waive all claims for injury or damage to person or property resulting from or during the event.

Renter is responsible for set-up, tear-down, and clean-up after the event. NAC’s event coordinator will be available to assist on a limited basis. Any clean-up or damage that remains will be billed to the renter.

NAC is a smoke-free facility inside and out.

*If you are scheduling an event outside of business hours we charge a staffing fee of $25 per hour.


Food and Beverage

Renter must provide their own caterer and alcohol service. NAC must approve the caterer and be given their contact information at least 60 days before the event.

No posters, charts, signs, decorations or other items may be attached to walls, doors, and pillars or hung from the ceiling or lighting fixtures. The safety of the artwork is of paramount importance and must be attended to at all times.
