Modern Artifacts 10: Rent to Own

Introduction by Michelle Elligott

For the 10th installment of our long-running series presented with the Museum of Modern Art Archives, we feature never-before-seen materials, including a removable facsimile of a 1957 brochure, related to the Museum’s discontinued Art Lending Service.

Michelle Elligott is the Rona Roob Senior Museum Archivist at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Elligott coedited Art in Our Time: A Chronicle of the Museum of Modern Art, cocurated MoMA’s “1969” exhibition, and has published and lectured widely.
