About Us

FINE ART FOR THE SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS COLLECTOR.

ART FOR CHANGE connects socially conscious art collectors with accomplished contemporary artists and their work. We offer exceptionally high quality artwork created exclusively for ART FOR CHANGE at manageable price points. ART FOR CHANGE donates a minimum of 20% of your print or painting purchase price to relevant non-profits to affect positive change in the world. We also encourage artists to maintain a significant portion of proceeds under the belief that direct investment in individuals is vital to a thriving cultural ecosystem.

OUR ARTISTS

ART FOR CHANGE builds relationships with artists over the course of many years. Through our artist relationships, we have access to works in progress as well as a deep understanding of the artists’ entire body of work. We are active in the contemporary art world, visiting artist’s studios as well as attending exhibitions in galleries and museums around the world. We carefully select our artist partners for each project ensuring our customers the best in contemporary art. When creating limited edition prints, ART FOR CHANGE works closely with each artist to create new and exclusive limited editions and commissions.

OUR PRINTS

Our museum-quality prints allow art collectors to purchase high-quality artworks at manageable price points. ART FOR CHANGE prints are limited edition artworks that are hand-signed and numbered by the artist. Through this process the artist inspects each print’s quality ensuring it is fit to live within an esteemed art collection. In certain cases, ART FOR CHANGE will work with artists to offer unique, one of a kind limited edition prints that are hand-embellished by the artist. Whether your acquisition is a signed and numbered limited edition print or a unique hand-embellished print, each is a collectable work of art.

OUR COLLECTORS

ART FOR CHANGE is a destination for the art collector who wants to affect change and support artists. We cater to new and seasoned collectors alike, offering the chance to acquire museum-quality prints at an affordable price point or original paintings from emerging artists that are on the rise in their careers. The seasoned art collector can continue to support artists they have followed for years or discover a new contemporary artist through ART FOR CHANGE’s carefully selected roster of artists. The budding art collector can feel confident buying art for the first time.
