Bonnefanten’s Art Loan program

27-07-2011 om 12:00 by Amanda Potter

005Want something special to hang over your fireplace (or big screen TV)? The Bonnefanten Art Museum in Maastricht has an interesting art lease program that will lead you something perfect for your space.

The first space I saw loaned Bonnefanten art was in my office building at the University of Maastricht. Some of the pieces were from an exhibit I visited at the museum last year, so it was interesting to see the pieces in a very different context. The artwork also really dresses the building up. The fact that I like modern art doesn’t hurt either.

The Art Loan program at the museum is based on a monthly membership automatically debited from your account. The level of membership you have determines how many works you may borrow at any given time and the total value of those items. Surprisingly these fees start at 5 euros per month; actually a reasonable rate for even the average contemporary art fan. All artwork is insured by the museum, so borrowers are only responsible for damage due to negligence.

You can learn more about the Art Loan program at the museum on their website or visit one of their Art Lease locations if you’re interested in getting a subscription yourself.
