Made to Order Commission Exhibition

Share today!

The Trout Museum of Art, with co-hosts Bergstrom Automotive and Community First Credit Union, are proud to return with Made to Order.

Support local artists and your local museum by commissioning a work of art. Works start at as little as $100. TMA’s goal is to raise $75,000 or more—half of which goes straight into the hands of artists, the other half supports TMA programming.

Made to Order will result in an exhibition of the original works, a virtual exhibition, and an opening reception and fundraiser on Friday, August 27, 2021 to unveil the finished pieces.

If you’re interested in commissioning a work, scroll to browse 35 talented artists and fill out an interest form. If you don’t see exactly what you want, ask TMA a question or fill out the interest form anyway and tell us what you’re looking for. We’ll help find the right artist for you.
