Crusade for Art

buying fine art photography

I really love this idea. If I wasn’t struggling to pay the mortgage and buy art supplies I would grab one. Fifty shares are being sold for $350 each. Your one share buys you 6 original, signed photographs to be commissioned by 6 different artists. So each work will be an edition of 50 (as there’s 50 share holders) and you’ll receive them over a period of 6 months (2 images every other month). You won’t know what the image will be but you’ll know who the photographers will be. They’re Jennifer Greenburg, Thomas Jackson, Shane Lavalette, Kerry Mansfield, Joshua Meier, and Heather Evans Smith. How cool is that? A surprise in the mail every 2 months! ;-)

Here’s the six photographers to be commissioned for the project..

The photos above are not the actual photographs you would be buying, they’re just examples of the work of each photographer. Find out more about the Crusade for Art project at their website here.
