Curina is a fine art rental subscription company – think Rent the Runway for fine art.

When Mio Asatani ‘19BUS moved to New York for business school, she wanted to buy original art by New York artists for her new apartment. However, she found galleries to be intimidating and also didn’t know if she was going to move after 2 years. This is when she started looking for a more flexible and affordable way to own fine art.

Curina is for someone who wants to enjoy a fine art for the duration of their apartment lease or who wants to try at home before committing to expensive pieces. Moreover, Curina represents and empowers local New York artist community by giving them exposure and a constant source of income through rentals. Curina acts as a talent agency for artists, creating and promoting digital content that informs the audience of artists’ stories, inspirations and artistic process.
