In spring 2004, Leveraging Investments in Creativity (LINC) commissioned David Bury & Associates to research innovative and interesting examples of private patronage that are designed to support individual artists. The goal was not a comprehensive survey of the field but a scan of models and examples that could be useful in stimulating further discussion on the topic, both locally and nationally. Conversations with twenty-six individuals resulted in a report entitled "Invigorating Private Patronage of Individual Artists: A Brief Discussion of Strategies and Structures," prepared July 14, 2004. What follows is a shorter essay containing many of the ideas and examples presented in the original report for LINC.
