Art Force MSP
We work with our community to ignite the creative economy and to uplift artists & charitable organizations. Since inception, Art Force has worked with over 150 clients and over 1,000 artists to place over 30,000 pieces of art nationwide. Each piece placed has allowed us to host community outreach events, champion health challenged artists, and contribute over $100,000 to more than 20 charitable and non-profit organizations since 2013.
How We Structure our Support:
1. Building our community through outreach and charitable contributions with our Community Fund.
2. Supporting creative professionals through patronage and entrepreneurial education.
3. Empowering health challenged artists through our Wings program.
Art Force Community Fund
We have made contributions to food shelves, organizations that support health challenged artists, children with cancer, children and teens holiday gifts, and many other organizations serving the community. Since 2013, our community fund has contributed over $100,000 to more than 20 organizations.
Join us for a holiday benefit supporting local charities and causes! We will be hosting a sale and silent auction of select original pieces in our showroom. Hundreds of original art and framed reproductions will be available throughout the night, and all money raised will be donated to local charities. Follow the link below for more information on the organizations we will be supporting and to RSVP for the event.
Art speaks. But it speaks most profoundly when put in the right context. The Wings Suite brings together health challenged artists from all walks of life, each with a compelling story to tell. The entire collection speaks to the power of positive distraction, empowerment, togetherness and shared experience in the healthcare environment. Tapping into a deep sense of shared experience and community, this artwork is intended for placement in healthcare facilities to uplift and inspire patients and staff. The Wings Suite has three categories: Wings (emerging & professional artists), Still Life (professional artists), and our Local Voice option, which gives existing arts programs options to print, hang and distribute proprietary artwork collections from their very own patients and staff.
Support for Creative Professionals
Artists and creative practitioners are the highly skilled professionals who work across the spectrum of art and design disciplines and industries. They challenge our ideas and norms and stimulate our environments and lives. Without their activity of art making, there would be no creative ecosystem. Through their partnership with Art Force, we provide recognition and visibility within the Twin Cities, a source of income as well as entrepreneurial education. As a result, artists are more able to make a living and contribute more meaningfully to their communities. Client companies benefit because their purchase of art through Art Force speaks volumes about their company culture – one that values art and ultimately the artists themselves.
We wanted to better understand the creative economy and how art can have a real impact on business and commerce. In our Creative Economic Development Study we assess the impact of visual art in commercial environments. Through various studies and interviews The Creative Economic Development Study has shown that art can be a powerful asset for companies and driver of local commerce. Our offerings and capabilities create more opportunities for creative professionals, while delivering both creative and custom solutions to our clients. Through this study we hope to structure our support and patronage of the local arts community in the most impactful way possible. Click the link below to download our study.
