The Art Bank of South Africa or ArtbankSA is a new initiative from the Department of Arts and Culture as part of the Mzansi Golden Economy (MGE) strategy implementation and is hosted by the National Museum Bloemfontein, an agency of the Department of Arts and Culture. The Art Bank of South Africa is tasked with purchasing artworks from South African artists, particularly that of emerging artists in order to lease and sell the artworks to South African government departments, private companies and private individuals. Focussed on nurturing emerging contemporary South African artists the annual acquisitions by the Department of Arts & Culture will be available for leasing by means of the website; which boasts an online store.
