A Gift for Art Aficionados…
At lunch with friends a few weeks ago we were talking about subscription services and this “Special Delivery” blog series was born. As I have delved into this series, I have learned so much about what’s available, including Art In A Box.
Based in Oakland, Calif., Art In A Box works just like any other subscription service, but instead of makeup or wine, you get art mediums. You have a choice in medium (ceramic, printmaking, painting, etc.) but the surprise is in the artist or piece that comes in the mail.
As a side benefit, the site also offers a Bronze in a Box, through a partnership with local artists. I find this very cool. Who wouldn’t want to add a bronze to their collections (just to say you did).
The subscription is not unreasonable at $50/month – which includes shipping.
What I like best is that you can buy the subscription in relatively short term increments (3 months) – making it a great gift.
