I BUY ART is a grassroots campaign that helps artists and art advocacy organizations encourage people to buy original art.
I BUY ART, a campaign started through Collecture to reinforce a philosophy that the best way to support the arts is to buy art, started with a hashtag and buttons sent across the United States. In 2018 it became the central theme of Peoria’s Fine Art Fair with I BUY ART branding throughout the fair in the form of wearable buttons, giant decorative buttons, mugs, a photo backdrop, and social media contest.

Peoria Magazines 2019
“Peoria Magazines is launching a new program in 2019. Essentially, we plan to turn our office into an art gallery! Not only will this program enhance our office with color and vibrancy, it encourages the community to purchase locally-made works of art. In the spirit of collaboration, we are working with Collecture’s I Buy Art initiative on this project.”
