ArtsVest Program

ArtsVest Program

Date Posted: 2007-Dec-08

One project that was truly a win-win-win situation for our organization was the ArtsVest program that was sponsored by the Council for Business and the Arts in Canada and the Ontario Trillium Foundation. We offered local companies the chance to actually become a part of our exhibits by purchasing signage in our "mini" arena and stadium outfield. We sold spots to nine companies and received services in kind from two others who provided graphic design and sign production.

This project added to the look of our exhibit gallery and provided businesses the opportunity to promote their company while at the same time supporting a community organization. With matching funds provided by ArtsVest, this project generated over $10,000 for our museum!
