Adopting Art

I think this is an idea that appeals to me because my mother used to check art out of the library. Pictures, sculptures, other items used to come visit our home for a short period of time while I was younger. combine that with our current adoption process and voila! we have a match.
You can 'adopt art', you have to write a letter to the artist & promise to care for the piece appropriately. A letter explaining why the particular piece you want appeals to you, what it says to you, how it touches you is usually needed. The artist then decides yes or no, you work out terms (usually shipping and framing) and then bring your piece home.
