WHAT IS THE IDEA BEHIND ART FUNDING
Many very talented artists have too few or almost no platforms on which to show their art. Many lack the financial means to present themselves at exhibitions with a large audience. But it is exactly these platforms that artists need, they have to be seen. This is where our ART FUNDING comes in. We want to enable talented artists to present their art to a large audience at SWISSARTEXPO free of charge.
HOW IS THE ARTFUNDING FINANCED
Art Funding depends on patrons, sponsors and art lovers! Every contribution, regardless of its size, helps us to support talented artists. Our aim is to invite new artists every year, with a minimum of 50% Swiss artists.
SWISSARTEXPO SUPPORTER CLUB
A membership of the SWISSARTEXPO Supporter Club costs CHF 200 per year, 100% of which goes to the SWISSARTEXPO Art Fund. With this income artists will be supported next year and invited to exhibit at the SWISSARTEXPO. Every year a special attraction is organised at the SWISSARTEXPO for the members of the Supporter Club. Find out more about the special attraction in 2021 here!
ART CHARITY NIGHT
On Friday evening, 27 August 2021, the ART CHARITY NIGHT will take place at SWISSARTEXPO. The supporting programme includes many attractions and the auction of various exciting exhibits (not only art). All proceeds from ticket sales for this evening and all auction proceeds will go 100% to the SWISSARTEXPO Art Fund. These proceeds will be used next year to support artists and invite them to SWISSARTEXPO.
