Made to Order, Helping Artists Now

The Trout Museum of Art, with co-hosts Bergstrom Automotive and Community First Credit Union, are proud to present Made to Order, a match-making program for art buyers and artists.

The art community has been hit hard during these times, you can help support local artists by purchasing a work of art. Works start at as little as $100. TMA’s goal is to raise $50,000 or more—half of which goes straight into the hands of artists, with the other half going to support TMA’s programming.

The Made to Order initiative will result in an exhibition of the original works of art, an online catalog documenting the work, and a celebration, Made to Order Premier, on Friday, August 28, 2020 to unveil the finished pieces.

If you’re interested in learning more, scroll to browse all our talented artists and fill out a Made to Order interest form. If you don’t see exactly what you want, that’s okay. Fill out the interest form anyway and tell us what you’re looking for. We will help find the right artist for you.
