WELCOME TO THE CHICAGO ART LIBRARY
We understand that buying original art can impose a significant financial strain on aspiring collectors. The Chicago Art library is a new social enterprise that enables Chicago residents to borrow original fine art from local artists. Borrow a piece of art for three months, return it, and borrow another piece- just like a library for books. If you decide that you cannot part with the art, then you get the artists' price. Unlike a traditional art gallery, we don't take a commission from art sales here because we want you to be able to afford original art without you being subjected to inflated prices.
