Art Money: a new way to buy art

First in the the state, Young Collectors Contemporary is excited to introduce Art Money

Art Money makes owning art easy and affordable. Payments are spread over 10 monthly installments. After paying a minimum 10% deposit, you can take your artwork home and pay the remaining balance over 9 months, interest free.

ith an Art Money interest free loan, an artwork that costs $5,000 is only $500 a month over 10 payments (your first payment is your deposit).

Art Money helps you enjoy art, support local artists and galleries and contributes to the long-term sustainability of local art and culture.
