Art to Lend 2019

The Art to Lend program allows faculty and staff to temporarily rent selected original works of art to decorate their private offices or administrative areas on-campus. 

The annual selection period runs Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Museum’s galleries on the first floor, west end of Altgeld Hall. If you are interested in participating and making selections, please visit the Art Museum and complete a registration form in person during the exhibition. There are nominal fees for this service to cover expenses including installation, matting and framing as well as future care and conservation of the remainder of the permanent collection. As in previous years, works will be assigned by a lottery based on your ranked selections. Recipients will be notified by email soon after the exhibition.
