Yesterday, I was delighted to learn (via DCist) about the brilliant idea that is Project Dispatch. Project Dispatch is an artwork subscription service offered by a group of artists nationwide. You can sign up for 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions to receive original works by the artist of your choice. The best part? The pricetag is pretty reasonable, considering what you receive in return. Subscriptions range from $15 to $40 a month. Learn more about the participating artists here (the piece above is by participating artist Reuben Breslar).
What a great way to begin building your personal art collection while supporting independent artists, many of whom are local to the DC area. (With the holidays approaching, this would also make a fabulous gift for the art lover in your life.)
And when friends ask about the intriguing package on your doorstep, you can casually take another sip of your espresso before breezily replying: "Oh that? That's just my monthly art delivery."
