Art-a-Loan

Art à Loan is a program that encourages young artists to develop their talents and share them with the larger community. This year, teachers from public, private and home schools in Jackson County submitted over 300 pieces of artwork from students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. Our jurors selected sixty pieces that are featured here.

Local businesses can now “rent” the art at a cost of $150 per piece for one year for public display at an office or organization. The rental proceeds are used to fund the program for the following year, providing funds for the framing, awards, and additional program costs.
