Creative Venues for Artwork

Showcasing artwork in creative venues can add to a viewer’s experience of seeing and interacting with art. Some creative and unique venues to display art include:

– gardens
– hotels
– theatres
– artists’ open studios
– hospitals
– health centres

Showcasing artwork is not limited to gallery walls or windows. Instead, treat viewers to an art experience they will not forget by choosing a creative and unique venue to display your art.
