About Chicago Art Leasing LLC
After putting the final brushstroke on a new painting, an artist member of Chicago Art Leasing uploads photos of the piece to the site's online lending library. Crowded with diverse art styles, the gallery harbors paintings, sculptures, and mixed-media works. Most of the works are also available for purchase, but the artists are happy to part with their creations for short-term leases on the walls of businesses, homes, and bee hives.
A Chicago artist and entrepreneur founded the artwork-lending business to make original art more accessible to the masses. Leases begin around $50 per month, and lease-to-own options foster gradual investment in art. Customers can also swap rentals for new pieces when they redecorate or wallpaper over their old display.
