obtain a great piece of art out of jail
Jail, Digital Print, 8.5" x 11", 2006, Ed. 12/25. Signed & dated.
J.T. Kirkland who runs the excellent Thinking About Art started a new blog with the mission to obtain a great piece of art that he could otherwise never obtain on his own: bARTer!
The princible of bARTer! is as simple as charming: JT offers a private work for trade. Once he has traded it for a new piece of art, the new work will be posted on bARTer! for the next exchange.
Admittedly he is trying to "trade up," but given the nature of art (beauty is in the eye of the beholder) others may very well be "trading up" as well.
Even if you don´t want to trade it shall be fun to follow the trail of trades at bARTer!
