RiNo is growing and our members are as diverse as ever. The creative energy that is the heart and soul of RiNo is kept alive by members supporting local artists. Here are a couple new additions who are actively looking to team up with RiNo artists:
The River North Art District frequently receives requests from local businesses and organizations to showcase artwork by RiNo artists.
We welcome these opportunities!
As advocates for artists, we strongly encourage collaborators to fairly compensate artists for their time and effort toward these mutually beneficial projects. The River North Art District offers the following suggestions:
- Pay the artist a percentage of the retail value of the art on display. A standard rate is 5 to 10% per month. For example if the total value of the art work being displayed is $5000, a stipend between $250 and $500 would be in order.
- Host a reception for the artist to invite collectors and the community to view the artwork. This benefits all involved by expanding the audience for the artist, and increasing sales for the business/host.
- Purchase artwork.
Hosts/venues can support the business of art while also promoting their own business. Stipends should be handled between the artist and the host. Please contact the host directly to work out the details.
In addition, artists receive numerous requests to donate work as fundraisers for charitable causes. These requests will be posted on this site only if the artist receives a percentage of the sale proceeds. These guidelines are in accordance with our Feed the RiNo campaign.
Thank you for supporting our artists and helping our neighborhood thrive! You can contact RiNo here with your listing.
