2021 MiNi Art Rental Collection – Call for Submissions

The Stewart Hall Art Gallery’s Art Rental and Sales Service is launching the MiNi Art Rental Collection, a project focusing on art created by children aged 12 years and under.
Parents and guardians are invited to submit the works of their young artists by completing the form at the link below.
Some 50 artworks will be selected by a jury made up of art professionals, community leaders and peers to be part of the 2021 MiNi Art Rental Collection. The chosen young artists will receive a $25 gift certificate to a local bookstore, thanks to the Friends of Stewart Hall’s financial support.
The selected artworks will be framed by the Art Gallery and exhibited in the Kids’ Corner in the fall of 2020. They will then be available for purchase or rental on a monthly basis at the Art Rental and Sales Service for a period of one year.
The sums raised from the rental or sale of an artwork in the 2021 MiNi Art Rental Collection will be donated to West Island Community Shares’ Powered by Kids for Kids campaign, in support of community groups focused on developing strong, resilient children.
