Over the past 8 years Free Columbia has run 10 Art Dispersals, dispersing over 600 works of art to people without set prices. As part of the upcoming How We Will forum we are doing it again!
As a society we have placed original works of visual art outside of the financial means of most people. At the same time we have impoverished most of our artists. At Free Columbia we are trying to turn this situation around. This means that you can become the steward of a painting, you can live with it for as long as you like, you can pass it along to someone else who wants it, and, if you no longer want to keep it, you can return it to the artist. Then, if you want to support this work you can make a donation to support the artists and Free Columbia.
Let us see what happens when we ask people to support the conditions for creativity instead of purchasing artwork.
