Receiving Artwork from The Art Endowment

Based on Boston's Art Connection, we strive to enhance the environment of the San Francisco Bay Area's own non-profits and public benefit organizations by providing Fine Art for public view. Fine art enhances lives on a spiritual and cultural level, reminds us that we have an abundant capacity for greatness.

You can enhance your public space by obtaining free or low-cost Fine Art through the Art Endowment. The process is easy and helps ensure that all involved are aware of all the benefits of the program. The following procedures are generally followed:
  • The organization fills out the Application Form
  • A representative of the Art Endowment reviews the application and makes initial contact to discuss the program, understand objectives and answer questions.
  • A representative of the Art Endowment makes a site visit to:
    • Meet the Art Review Committee Members
    • Discuss the program, understand objectives, and answer questions
    • Show the current available artwork
    • Finalize the paperwork
  • Committee Members select art that is desired
  • The Art Endowment confirms the availability of the desired art
  • A Placement visit is made where:
    • The desired art that was available is hung
    • The Art Review Committee is instructed in the proper care of the art including what to do in the event the art is to be moved.
  • An installation celebration is often a good idea.

  • Copy of IRS form 501(c)(3)
