I've downloaded it and installed it but I'm getting SQL version errors when attempting to register as a user.
I have zero programming skills so it would probably be impossible anyway for me to change it (simplify the structure) to just serve images.
I am willing to pay someone to set this up but I couldn't afford a lot.
Perhaps even ask the guys behind TheTVDB.com and themoviedb.org if they like to start a joint site? ...I know that guys behind themoviedb.org bought the domain "themusicdb.org" in case they would ever want to start a such project in the future, but I doubt that they would want to run it alone, (as they are as far as I know only two person working on themoviedb.org today), it is probably too large of a project for one person so teamwork is almost certainly required.
There is no reason that it 'only' has to hold FanArt, it could be made to a complete music database someday, you could possibly start a such priject by copying some metadata from freedb.org and musicbrainz.org, then get album cover images, and artist pictures from community uploaders. Free to all users and community driven meta data content is the key I think, however website adds, sponsors, and donations to pay for everything is OK.
I suggest you post a public plea for help on the forums of the sites who will use it (XBMC, MediaPortal, MeediOS, etc.)
