Every year the Art Bank adds to its collection through the Art Bank Purchase Program. Pieces that are acquired become part of a working collection. The pieces are maintained, loaned out and displayed in government offices and agencies. The program raises awareness of artists and their works and stimulates interest in visual arts and craft.
