IPMM is happy to unveil Shared Walls by IPaintMyMind™ at Sol Cafe, a cross-sector arts program that emphasizes the transformative power of art by putting art exhibitions in non-traditional spaces like schools and small businesses. A wall without art on it, is lesser than an art with. Putting art in spaces where it normally doesn’t exist creates a new synergy between artists, communities, and the common good. As a nonprofit organization dedicated to media and the arts, our minds have been moving (for a while now), on how IPaintMyMind could amplify its mission in 3D: providing real avenues for engagement with the arts. We find it essential to curate art available at price points that aren’t prohibitive for the average person. If a piece of artwork costs $250, you might have to consult your significant other before making the financial commitment. If it’s $20, you might shoot from the hip. As art lovers, curators, organizers, and patrons, we get it: the rent takes priority over art. That being said, IPMM finds it to be incumbent upon the creative community to find the commonality by creating art at price points that makes art more accessible to everyone.
