How does it work?
Landmark Artist offers a selection of original artwork to local companies to hang 3-6 months. During that time, the art is advertised both online and on-location.
Any sales (online or in-person) made while artwork is part of our program are subject to a 30% commission fee: 20% to Landmarkarts, and 10% to the business hanging the artwork, with the artist retaining the remaining 70%. If artwork is not hanging in an exhibit at the time of sale, the artist retains the business 10% cut in addition to their standard 70%. Landmark Artist does not charge any fees outside of this commission, for artist or business.
1 - Ready 5+ works for installation
2 - APPLY!!!
3 - Pass an internal jury process

1 - Ready 5-20 pieces of art for installation
Works must be framed, or have sides painted to the back edge on a quality wrap-around canvas, and wired for hanging.
2 - APPLY!!! Use high quality photos/scans of 5-10 works that are a good representation of your style. If you don’t know how to do this, check our resources page for recommended reference photographers.
3 - Pass an internal jury process. This takes up to 2 weeks, and we’ll notify you as soon as a decision has been reached. Decisions are based on: location of artist (Utah Valley is best), amount of artist slots we have open, size of work, quality of work/materials, and content values (we don’t recommend submitting dark themes or graphic content).*
4 - Once accepted, send images of all artwork you want considered for hanging. We’ll help you narrow the list down if necessary,* and begin advertising your work to local businesses!
*Landmark Arts reserves the right to refuse individual pieces of selected artists that don’t live up to their community standards.
Once selected as a Landmark Artist, high-quality photos of 4-15 sale-ready works will be uploaded onto the Landmark Artist website, and the work will be presented as part of the Landmark Artist inventory to business connections. Artists are required to notify Landmark Artist within 24 hours of sale any time their artwork sells. If a piece of art is not hanging in an exhibit when a sale is made, the artist retains the business 10% cut in addition to their standard 70%.
Landmark artist ALWAYS encourages artists to continue to promote their work individually, both while waiting for businesses to select their artwork and while it is hanging on office walls.
If selected by a business, 1-2 week notice will be given before scheduled art installation date. Artists are expected to drop off artwork either at Landmark Artist Headquarters, or Customer location.
