The collection is billed as the “most comprehensive public collection of its kind in Florida” and consists of more than 270 prints by major artists of the past 50 years and documents the course of contemporary American art since the 1960s, including Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, and more.
The program was launched in 1975 with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and has grown through the years. Leasing fees collected through the program are used to purchase new prints each year and to build the collection. After prints have been leased for a series of years, they are then retired from the program and kept for exhibition in the museum only.
Lease fees range from $300-$1,500 per year and include insurance, delivery, and installation. The pieces are collected and returned to the museum after a 23-month period. Companies interested learning more about the program should contact the Council of 101 office at 407-896-4231, extension 254 or [email protected].
