Art Leasing

Leasing art provides corporate clients the ability to enhance their offices with the work of our gallery’s emerging artists. In addition, art rentals can be categorized as an operating expense.

Renting allows time to understand a painting or sculpture in your personal context before making the commitment to purchase it. Terms for art rental cycle on 3 month intervals, at the end of each rental term clients have the option to buy the work. Should you choose to purchase the work, the Foundry will apply 50% of the rental fees paid toward the purchase price.

The option of renting art allows for greater flexibility and change in your chosen environment, home, or workplace.
