The Business of Art

What is it?

The Business of Art Program is dedicated to helping our community experience fine art in the places they eat, shop and live. The program allows local artists to display a few pieces (depending on space allowed) of their art in businesses around Maple Grove & Osseo. This not only enriches the community and the businesses but also gives local artists a chance to sell their work. All sales will be done through the Maple Grove Art Center, not the business where artwork is displayed. The Maple Grove Arts Center takes a 25% (members) & 40% (non-members) commission for all artwork sold through this program so we can continue to thrive and provide a platform of arts in the Maple Grove community! Artwork will be changed out every 2 - 3 months depending on each individual artist.

Why participate?

By participating your business have the chance to feature & support a local artists work, not only will you be supporting the individual artist but you will be supporting Maple Grove Arts Center & the community. The Business of Art will reach out to your clients & customers (Maple Grove & Osseo Residents) so they can know what we do & who our artists are at the Maple Grove Art Center ! You will generate interest in our program & The Art Center WHILE adding some beautiful artwork in your space!

What will you need to do to prepare?

Choose a space for artwork to be displayed, be present on the day of setup and take down. If you would like to do the hanging that will be up to the business owner but we will have all the tools and materials for the actually hanging & displaying. Artists will also display a bio & business cards as well.

Questions or would you like to get involved?
