The Tiny Art Gallery
Welcome to the Tiny Art Gallery Project page. We're starting small but have big ideas.
We are still in the pre-installation phase. Check back regularly or join the mailing list.
A bit about the Tiny Art Gallery:
This project is inspired by the Small Free Library movement. It is a way to get more people thinking about and interacting with art. Art galleries in the classic sense have a hard time because they have to sell art, and art is usually expensive. Therefore, not many have personal access to art, unless they make it, or have a lot of money. That's where the Tiny Art Gallery (TAG) comes in.
Community artists, or aspiring artists make a little piece of art (around 2"x2", or 2"x3", or maybe a little sculpture) and put it in the Gallery. Little stretched canvases, easels, brushes and paints will be supplied. There will likely be attrition, so patrons will be very helpful in keeping the TAG supplied.
Neighbors can borrow a piece or two (with easels) and take them home to display. They will be asked to take a photo and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org so it can be displayed on the website (http://ecojusticepress.com/tinyartgallery.html has preliminary info on the TAG). It may also show up in the books which will be rewards to patrons. Each piece in the TAG will be photographed, and special 'shows' may be sponsored by patrons.
The TAG will be installed on a street that is designated a Safe Route To School.
The Gallery will be in a small enclosure that looks like this:
It has been purchased and when it arrives will need to be securely installed on a post.
Check out the Pateron.com donation page for those wanting to monetarily support the project. Postcards, paperback and hardcover books with art from the Gallery will be rewards.
