Montana Artrepreneur Program

Research Commissioned by the Montana Arts Council

Artists’ Sales and Impact on Household Income 2009-2014

The Montana Arts Council established the Montana Artrepreneur Program (MAP) in 2009 to support individual artists working in rural areas in the state who wanted to increase their household incomes through the sale of their art. The basic structure of MAP is a ten-month course of participatory training in a regional cohort of artists, followed by a process of formal certification.

With business development as the intended outcome, the certification process requires artists to complete a comprehensive toolkit to become market-ready.
