IX Information

IX Commission Artwork

The IX commissions are given out each year to several artists to produce major personal works which are then used to promote IX, imaginative realism, and the artists themselves.

These commissions are a key part of the IX mission—encouraging the creation of new, major traditional media works at a scale and complexity unlimited by standard deadlines or content restrictions. Over the years, the IX commissions have produced a consistent range of spectacular pieces by some of the finest living artists in the field. These pieces, in addition to promoting IX and the artists, comprise the IX Arts collection which is available for exhibition and slated for eventual donation for permanent display.
