Goal

Introducing new audiences to collecting art by starting an art rental program, where any resident with a library card can check out works to display in their home

As a way to introduce new audiences to collecting art, the museum will start an art rental program, where any resident with a library card can check out works to display in their home. Artists that traditionally show work in museums and galleries will have works hanging in Summit County residences. Living with original works of art fosters a deeper connection with the art and artists. The library program will pay regional artists for their works, contributing to the local arts economy, promoting arts dialogue and connecting to new audiences.
