FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Thinking of joining Commissioner
but have some questions?
1. Why are there only 50 Collector
Commissioner works hard to ensure that our collectors receive original, high-quality artwork and get access to an immersive experience. To do so, we’ve limited the commissioned artwork to 50 pieces from each artist, hence only 50 spots.
“I don't believe in art. I believe in artists.”
— Marcel DuChamp
2. Who are the participating artists?
Our Season One Commissioner artists included multi-disciplinary artist TYPOE, Adler Guerrier, Kelly Breez and Jamilah Sabur. Artists are unveiled every quarter – October 2020, February 2020, March 2020 and May 2020.

3. If I don’t know the artists in advance, how do I know it’s worth my money?
It's okay, we’d ask that question too.
Commissioner works with rising and established Miami artists with the help of our curatorial partner PRIMARY. Commissioner has also been endorsed by Diaspora Vibe Gallery, Fountainhead Residency, Pérez Art Museum Miami and Prizm Art Fair.
For $1,500 you’ll receive four original, limited-edition art pieces and an educational experience about art collecting: take the leap.
4. Can I subscribe as a Patron two years
in a row?
Absolutely. Patron memberships are open to everyone, every year. Collectors who finish the program are then able to rejoin as an Alumni.
5. What is the refund policy?
We cannot issue refunds. Your subscription fee is used to fund the artist commission of new work and every dollar counts. Once you subscribe as a Collector, we cannot transfer your subscription to another person.
If you choose to give up your subscription to Commissioner, we will go to our pool of Patrons - all of whom paid $50 to support this program - to offer your spot.
In this way, you’ll be passing on the opportunity to someone who has already shown a real interest in participating, but who may not have had the funding available to them at the time.
It’s a really nice thing to do and you still get access to our great content and the Commissioner alumni network after year one. You are also welcome to gift your artwork to a friend.
6. What happens if a Collector spot opens up during the year?
If a Collector decides to give up their subscription for the year, we'll go to our Patrons to fill the spot.
While Collector commitments are for one full year only and are non-refundable and non-transferable (see our refund policy above), Collectors who give up their subscriptions may choose to donate it to our Patrons.
7. I'm a Collector / Patron, can I bring guests to events?
Events are open to the Commissioner community unless noted as Collector-specific. Some events are open to the public. Due to the intimate nature of some of our events, when we are able to accommodate guests, we will let you know.
