Art pop ups are a one day event where you provide artists with a table and can choose to provide a panel for them to sell their artwork in your space. Artists are always encouraged to create live experiences, like live painting and you may include a wide range of performative arts, like a music group. In this case, the art does not remain in the space after the event.
Exhibitions are usually month-long events where artworks are displayed for sale at your space. Artists apply, MUSA curates the show, and you get to exhibit local art while having the possibility of earning up to a 20% commission on any art piece sold. To celebrate and attract the audiences, exhibitions require an opening show with the presence of the artist/s and may include live performances.

Not looking to create an event? You can rent or buy directly from your local artists. You can rent for as long as you desire, have the art for sale at your space and earn a commission, and get the opportunity to discount the rental expenditures if you decide to buy the piece down the road. Renting is a direct transaction with the artist and MUSA adds a 20% service fee. If you don't want to rotate and have found what you have been looking for, you can just buy it directly!
