When it comes to art for your kids’ rooms, your budget (preframed posters) and tastes (Gagosian Gallery) don’t quite sync up.
But with the launch of LittleCollector.com, an online gallery and forum dedicated to contemporary art for children at reasonable prices, you may have finally found your match.
Choose from limited-edition prints by noted artists such as Cynthia Rowley, Don Porcella, Julie Heffernan, Shepard Fairey, Kenny Scharf, and Margaret Morrison — all created exclusively for LittleCollector or drawn from the artists’ personal archives.
Prices range from the very affordable ($40 for an unframed eight-by-ten-inch print) to a minor investment ($375 for a 20-by-24-inch print framed). The site also offers you and your kids an education on artists from Paul Cezanne to Damien Hirst.
And we think that’s a real stroke of genius.
Exclusive preview for DailyCandy Kids readers starts today. Use code littlecandy online at littlecollector.com to access.
