Art á Loan

Out of This World

Art á Loan encourages young artists to develop their talents and share them with the larger community. This year, teachers from public and private schools in Jackson County submitted nearly 260 pieces of artwork from students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. Jurors selected forty-five pieces, which are now being professionally framed and will be displayed. Following the display, the pieces will be rented and displayed in public locations around Jackson County for one year.

All 2019 Art a’ Loan Pieces have been rented for one year for public display at an office or organization. The rental proceeds are used to fund the program for the following year, providing funds for the framing, awards, and additional program costs.


Did you know that Art a Loan, the annual Jackson County student art exhibit is entering its 13th year? The program is designed to encourage young artists to share their talents with the Jackson community. Artworks from students in Kindergarten through 12th grade were selected to be professionally framed and displayed in the community.  This program is a partnership between the Ella Sharp Museum and the Jackson Civic Art Association.
