Metro Arts spokeperson Emily Waltenbaugh said that this program was held to support local artists and give access to the citizens if they want to search for different arts. “Metro Arts put out a call to artists last year in an effort to support local artists during a rough time (tornado, pandemic, you remember)”.

The artworks that Metro Arts bought are now stated as city public art collection., that's why individuals can only borrow them for a period of time instead of buy the whole work. The citizens can see the artwork being shown at the wall of Madison and Southeast Library branches.
