Art on Loan

Willmar Area Arts Council is pleased to provide the Art on Loan service for its business members.

This program seeks to provide your business establishment with original works of art by our artist members. We will work with you to determine what kind of art you need - paintings, photography, three dimensional works, etc. - and then find artists willing to loan works for you to display. This will not only enhance your work environment, it will allow our artist members to have their works on public display.

Program Details
  • •  Artists will provide their work for loan to businesses.

  • •  Businesses and artists must be members of Willmar Area Arts Counci to participate.

  • •  Art on Loan will work with each participating business to determine the kind of art they desire.

  • •  Each participating artist will provide three sample pieces which will be displayed on Willmar Area Arts Council website.

  • •  Businesses must choose from available artwork.
    • If a business requests art of a specific nature, ('Can you paint me something like´┐Ż') they will need to commission an artist to do that work and
    • purchase it.

  • •  Businesses will display artist information, price of the artwork and possibly a story about it next to the artwork.

  • •  Businesses have the option to purchase the Art-on-Loan pieces after the initial display period.

  • •  Businesses are responsible for insuring the works against damage or loss.

  • •  Artists are responsible for delivery and pick-up of the works.

  • •  Businesses realize that most works are for sale at any time and the artist is responsible for replacing sold works.
