D’AGUILAR ART FOUNDATION (DAF) BAHAMIAN ART LENDING PROGRAM
The Bahamian Art Lending Program, launched in 2009, intends to engage the local business community in promoting Bahamian art while allowing them the opportunity to enliven their work spaces with high quality original artwork.
The objectives of the Bahamian Art Lending Program are to:
ELIGIBILITY & REQUIREMENTS
Program participants must be reputable, ethical and community-minded businesses with significant numbers of visitors, so that art works can receive widespread exposure. It is not intended that any artworks be displayed in private offices or back office areas. Rather, artworks should be displayed in reception areas, board rooms, meeting rooms, etc. Office premises must be situated in a clean and secure building in a reputable business district. Rooms where art is to be displayed must be attractive, clean, climate controlled, properly lit, and secure.
Art works must be hung so that they are protected from potential damage by office equipment and internal traffic. Art work may not be hung where it will receive direct sun exposure during any portion of the day.
SELECTION OF THE ARTWORK
Based on a tour of the participants' office premises, the administrators of the DAF’s Bahamian Art Lending Program will suggest art works that are suitable in subject matter, size and format.
Participants are asked to review suggested works and discuss options with the DAF administrator so that a suitable selection of art works can be agreed upon.
All artwork will be installed by a team from the DAF. Any specific concerns regarding hanging hardware, possible damage to walls, etc., should be discussed and resolved in advance of the installation date.
