AVA's ART LOAN PROGRAM
By offering site-specific exhibitions of original artwork in the places where people spend a large portion of their time – the workplace, AVA provides a unique opportunity for Chattanooga employers to offer a positive, educational and healthy environment for their employees.
In 2015, AVA reinstated its Art Loan program, which places local artists' work with select area businesses on a rotating basis. This is carefully curated around the businesses needs, and seeks to help local artists gain further exposure within Chattanooga and acquire new patrons.
AVA’s aim is to make this service completely turnkey. We take care of all selection, inventory control, transit, hanging and identification labeling of the artworks. We also handle all sales and contracting the artists. All that we ask of the business is to provide AVA with a liaison person who is responsible for keeping a ‘watchful eye’ on the condition of the artwork as well as contacting AVA regarding questions about the exhibit including the sale of artworks.
We can rotate artworks as often as the business would like, but we recommend a six month loan time period. Prices vary depending on the time period and amount of work the business needs.
