'Tis the season of mass consumerism, so let's gather some good ideas to inject a personal touch into your gift giving.
The Working Proof is a great alternative; they seek to promote art and social responsibility. Every week, a different print is released (Tuesdays at 1:30p EST) Each print is paired with a charity of the artist's choice, to which they donate 15% of the sale of each print - creating what they believe to be a product with not just aesthetic, but social value. Besides showcasing emerging artists and great artwork, the intent of the Working Proof is to promote a variety of charities and to expose them to new supporters through the appreciation of art and creativity.
Sounds good, right?
I love the print, Flying Geese, by Sharon Montrose, showcased this week. For each print sold that supports The Pablove Foundation, The Working Proof will donate 20%, instead of the usual 15%.
They have some really beautiful pieces- check it out!
