Art Lending Open House begins Aug. 17

AMES – The Iowa State Memorial Union is hosting the annual Art Lending Open House from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 7 and from 10 a.m. to noon Aug. 8. The open house will be held in the Browsing Library on the first floor of the Memorial Union.

The Art Lending collection includes close to 175 framed posters, prints and paintings, including a number of brand new pieces for this year. Selections from the art-for-rent collection may be viewed during the open house, and are available for rent for a half year or full year.

Rentals typically range from $10 to $25 per year and patrons may take selected pieces with them that day. A few discontinued pieces will also be available for purchase – priced to sell.

The Art Lending program offers an inexpensive way to improve your home or office and is perfect for anyone wanting to enhance their space. Proceeds from rentals directly support art programs at the Memorial Union.

The Memorial Union is located at 2229 Lincoln Way on the ISU campus in Ames. For more information contact Letitia Kenemer at 515-294-0971 or
