M.A.R.I. strives to make collections and information about the ancient and modern cultures of Mexico and Central America available to all interested parties. Consequently, the Institute welcomes public, media, and research interest in the galleries and collections. We will try to accommodate requests to photograph, video tape, or film in the galleries whenever possible.
Permission from M.A.R.I. is required to reproduce its past published works or portions thereof or other material from the Institute's archives and collections for classroom use or for the publication of personal, commercial, or academic work in print or on the Internet.
Please contact M.A.R.I. via email with image permission requests. A staff member will be in contact regarding permission and any fees that may need to be assessed pending the granting of permission. If you have an institutional form or letter that is filled out and only requires a signature, please email or mail a copy of it to M.A.R.I., and we will assist you with it as quickly as we can.
For further questions regarding permission from M.A.R.I. for the right to use previously published materials for any Internet or print publication purpose, please contact us and we will gladly assist you.
