Around the office, we have a new favorite source for online artwork that has great pieces and a mission we love. ArtLifting uses a unique model of empowering individual artists living with homelessness or disabilities by celebrating and selling their artwork, creating opportunity, empowerment, and validation. Every artist earns 55% from the sale of their work; 1% from each sale goes to a fund, which provides art supplies to therapy groups nationwide; and ArtLifting uses the remaining 44% to further our mission. And they’ve curated some great pieces to boot.
All works are available as fine art prints, with some also for sale as originals, posters, phone cases, tote bags, and greeting cards. Finding good artwork can be daunting, but the website is easy to use, and you can search for pieces by color, artist, or subject matter. If you like, take a look at a few of our favorites here or check out their website.
