I’ve been a long time fan of Jen Bekman’s 20×200. Just check out my hallway if you want proof! All those are prints I’ve bought over the years from Jen’s 200 limited edition prints for $20 scheme. As her motto says, “Buy art. It’s good for you.”
Today I was particularly pleased to get an email from 20×200 featuring a photographic print by LA artist Emily Shur with all proceeds going towards Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund. It’s great how quickly artists always respond in times of crisis. And never underestimate the power of a graphic image to galvanize support — a poster can be more effective than a statistic in inspiring compassion.
