I recently applied to have some of my artwork hang at a company for a few months, which would come with a stipend of a few hundred dollars. I was rejected, and I emailed asking if the company could send me an image of the art they chose. They said that since they are only renting the work and not purchasing it, that they didn't feel comfortable distributing images of it.
Would the company really have been putting themselves in a situation by emailing me an image of the work they chose? Or are they just too lazy to find/take a photo of the work, or go out of their way for someone?
