Patron Program

web patron 2014 graphicPatron Program: The Patron Program matches patrons with artists to underwrite a year’s operating costs for their working studio space while in residence. For a $5,000 donation, patrons not only play an imperative role in Studios Inc, they also have the option to receive the gift of a work from the artist to add to their private collection (the amount of the contribution that is tax deductible is limited to the difference between the amount of the contribution and the value of the art work received) or take a the full tax deduction for their contribution.  Furthermore, the Patron Program provides the opportunity for a heightened level of dialogue between patron and artist. Patrons are encouraged to cultivate relationships with the artists to learn more about the creative process and perhaps provide additional career assistance through networking and patron resources.
