PEI Art Bank Collection

To the Circus d’Erin Arsenault fait partie de la Banque d’œuvres d’art de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard. Cette œuvre est exposée dans le centre d’apprentissage Inspire à Summerside.

The Prince Edward Island Art Bank collection was established in the early 1980s to support and encourage visual artists living in Prince Edward Island. The works of art for the collection represent the artistic diversity of Island visual artists and are acquired through purchase (when funding is available), donation, gift and bequest.

Where can I see the collection?Flickr logo

Pieces from the collection are displayed in provincial government buildings across Prince Edward Island. You can also view the PEI Art Bank Collection online.

How is art selected for the collection?

The PEI Art Bank is a working collection with most items displayed in reception and high traffic areas of public buildings. The program also makes art also available for educational use.

To be considered for acquisition, your work must be suitable (in form, size, condition and media) for immediate accommodation in a public space.

A peer adjudication committee reviews applications. This jury recommends works that reflect the creativity, expertise and experience of Island visual artists and comply with the objectives of the program.

How are are members of the jury selected?

Members of the PEI arts community are periodically invited to apply to take part in the jury selection process. 

How can I submit my work for consideration?

New applications from artists will be accepted once the 2019 Provincial Art Bank Program has been announced. Qualifications, criteria and selection process will be available at that time.
