Adam Simon: Fine Art Adoption Network
A book about one of my favorite art projects, the Fine Art Adoption Network, is now available from Art in General. Information about obtaining the book can be found on Art in General's website.
Launched in 2006, the Fine Art Adoption Network is a network that uses a gift economy to connect artists and artworks with potential collectors. As the website continues to connect artists with admirers and potential adopters Adam Simon: Fine Art Adoption Network documents the stories of a few of these adoptions and includes an essay on the project by David Trigg.
After you read David Trigg's essay, go out and buy BOMB magazine that features more Adam Simon, including a spread of his paintings accompanied by stories by Matthew Sharpe.
