ART FOR THE CURIOUS: Benefiting artists & the planet—one print at a time
Art For The Curious (AFTC) is an online showcase/shop that brings together art and science for the good of our planet. We are passionate about supporting artists AND protecting the environment. We do both by providing a venue for professional exposure and income generation to artists, selling their science-inspired art as archival pigment prints on sustainably sourced bamboo paper, and donating 15% of the profits from every sale to environmental charities.
We'd like to invite established and emerging artists to submit art that references, in any way, science, nature or technology to our curatorial team for sale in our collection.
WHY JOIN AFTC:
- CREATE AWARENESS: Help us inspire popular curiosity and awareness about science as a means of understanding our universe and protecting our planet.
- PROTECT THE PLANET: 15% of profits from every sale is donated to the environmental charity selected by the buyer.
- TRAFFIC, EXPOSURE & PROFIT: Link back to your own website from your Artist Profile page. Get exposure and make continuing income from work you've already created. Our artists are paid 50% of the profits from each sale of their work.
- IT'S RISK-FREE: It's completely free to sell your work, and you retain all rights to your work that you already hold.
- IT'S EASY: We take care of advertising, hosting, printing, framing (if applicable), packaging, shipping and all customer inquiries.
- SHARE YOUR PASSION: Give the world affordable access to your unique art.
