Art:Crate Original Art Exhibited at Your Headquarters Monthly
A Startup in Beta Testing for the Seedworks Lab Incubator by artist Nathan Sharratt and ETChster
How does it work?
Art:Crate works directly with collectible artists from the metro area to provide you with 10 unique pieces by a single artist each month. On your monthly Refresh date, the pieces on display at your place of business are removed, and you receive 10 new pieces from another Art:Crate artist. Participating artists receive royalties and commissions when their art is out on Exhibition, so not only do you get amazing artwork to beautify your office, you also can contribute to creating a sustainable cultural ecosystem for your community. Feels good, doesn’t it?
So I can improve the art ecosystem just by subscribing to Art:Crate?
That’s right! Part of Art:Crate’s mission is to grow Atlanta’s collector culture and provide sustainable income for its artists. We believe that when you uplift artists, you uplift society. And you’re an integral part of that mission! We want to help you create an amazing experience for your team and your visitors, who will get the benefit of getting to know the amazing artists in the program.
How much does it cost?
You pay a simple monthly subscription of $499 by credit card with a 6 month commitment. At the end of Beta, you can cancel your subscription or do nothing and you’ll automatically continue your Art:Crate service into the next season.
If you do the math, you’ll pay roughly the cost of two pieces of art over the course of a year, but have the pleasure of seeing 120 pieces on display.
When you rent for a year through Art:Crate, you’ll…
- Pay about the cost of 2 works
- See 120 works
- Help support 12 artists
What if a team member wants to keep one of the pieces?
That’s great! All Art:Crate works are available for purchase at the stated price by credit card. As soon as a piece is purchased, it will be replaced in its traveling collection.
What if the art gets damaged at my business?
Contact us immediately with a photo of the damage and we’ll contact the artist to determine if the work can be repaired. If it is repairable, depending on the extent of the damage, we may collect a repair fee to pay the artist for their time repairing the work. If the work is damaged beyond repair, you will be charged for the retail value, so please treat the art with the utmost respect and care.
What kind of art am I going to get?
An eclectic mix of styles, media, and genres. Specific pieces depend on which artists are participating and which works are currently available, but all art is from professional local artists with an exhibition history, and all works are wall mounted.
How big is it going to be/how much space does it need?
This also depends on which pieces are available, but we try to get a mix of sizes. No piece will be larger than approximately 40” on either side, and we will notify you ahead of the installation date what the sizes of the works you will be receiving that month are.
What do I do with art I own/currently on my walls?
That’s up to you. In the future, we may offer storage plans but for the pilot program, it is the subscriber’s responsibility to ensure they have enough space for ten works. You will be notified before the install date of each artwork’s size.
Will my walls get damaged?
Professional picture-hanging J-hooks use small nails and create minimal impact to standard drywall walls, and all artworks will have lower bumpers to protect the wall. We also have the option of using 3M hanging tape for lighter works, which remove cleanly but require a smooth wall with no texture.
How do I get started?
It’s simple. Apply today and if you’re approved, we’ll set your first installation time and bill you.
