Museum Exchange is proud to be a sponsor of the 2023 NOAH conference, marking our organization’s first time participating in this vital convening of professionals committed to the arts in healthcare.

Museum Exchange was founded in 2020 by art world experts to bring philanthropic giving into the digital age. Our digital platform connects donors with institutions across North America and manages every step of the donation process, making receiving gifts of art easy and accessible for organizations of all types, sizes, and locations. Having initially launched with a network of art museums, in summer 2022 we expanded to the healthcare and higher education sectors. This opened up membership to hospitals, universities, and other nonprofit organizations that support wellness and learning through the arts. Today we have over 250 art museums and 25 healthcare organizations in our network. And in the past year alone, we have placed more than 260 donated artworks in healthcare settings throughout the country—from New York to Illinois, Minnesota, D.C., North Carolina, Michigan, and Ohio.

We know that healthcare organizations often have small if non-existent budgets for art and that they are limited in the gifts that they can receive from their donor base. We offer a revolutionary alternative, providing organizations access to an ever-changing catalogue of artworks being offered for donation by donors across the continent. Not only can organizations find appropriate artworks for their facilities, but they can also develop relationships with donors who they might not otherwise ever have an opportunity to meet.

In our catalogues you’ll find a range of artworks, ensuring that there is something for any institution looking to enhance their collection or jumpstart a new one. Whether you’re searching for a major sculpture to welcome patients, staff, and visitors or a group of works to enhance a long, dull hallway; we can help be a resource for you. Our early adopters have had great success with the platform. We are already seeing the transformative impact that art can have in the healthcare environment, such as The Rogosin Institute where we installed over 50 artworks at their Dialysis Centers throughout New York City. Empty walls came to life with artworks that had been donated through Museum Exchange, ranging from a dreamy landscape scene by Stephen Pentak to conceptual photographs by Bea Nettles and a colorful abstraction by Suzanne Caporael. We would love to make a difference at your institution too.
