User Generated Content - Terms of Use & Permission Request

Pasadena Society of Artists (PSA) promotes our artist members by providing opportunities to highlight their images on our website, social media channels, and in occasional promotional materials.

PSA does not claim ownership of members’ content, and our use is solely intended to promote our member artists – through sharing images of artwork, techniques, art studios, exhibition news, etc. You, as a member of PSA, acknowledge that you are the creator of the artwork/images/written word (content) or that you have permission to share the content, and if you did not take the photo yourself, that you give credit to the photographer. You give us permission to show your username, profile picture, and information about your actions (such as “likes” and “shares”). You certify that you are at least 18 years of age.

We are requesting your explicit permission to post the content you submit to us (whether directly or from the use of hashtags) in our website and social media for the purposes of highlighting your art, as well as showing the creative diversity of PSA’s artist members.

If you choose to allow us to use your submitted content, and have not yet granted permission, please fill out this short form.

Social Media Posting Guidelines

IEA’s social media channels create an environment where our artistic community can safely share their creativity and art in images and comments.  We ask that you always show courtesy, kindness and respect.  We do not allow advertising or sales, but at our discretion, we may promote exhibition and grant opportunities, or feature vendors who have donated to IEA’s programs.  Please keep comments relevant and please follow all terms of the stated social media platforms.  We will delete comments that are offensive, hateful, inflammatory or discriminatory in any way, or promote sexually explicit material or violence.  We reserve the right to block users who do not follow these guidelines.
