'A' for Art

All-American Art

I saw the video below when I was in San Francisco a couple of months ago to meet with the Art.com team. It’s beautifully done, and the music swells at just the right point, but more than that, it shows how much pride they take in their framing process.

And here’s a bit of exciting news: Art.com is hosting a giveaway this week for a $500 shopping spree on their site! Follow them on Pinterest to be eligible and abreast of all the details.

Inspired by their American craftsmanship, I pulled together a few of my favorites from their Americana collection. (You know, so when you win that $500 shopping spree, you’ll have some ideas about what to get.)

  1. The Golden Nugget Gambling Hall Lighting Up Like a Candle (Eyerman)

  2. Man Waving from Empire State Building Construction Site

  3. Chicago, Illinois, 1941 (Rosskam)

  4. Coney Island, 1945 (Weegee)

  5. Passionate Couple Kissing in a Subway Car (Alan)

  6. Baptist Church

    Love this video and I really like all things handmade!
    I have an Etsy shop and make handmade clutches so …
    The fact that the frame you purchase is made just for you has no price …!
    And I really love the 5th picture, so romantic and modern ♥

      Just wanted to clarify something: the frames do have a price (they aren’t free).

      I also went and checked out your blog though — I love your taste in design! The “Precious Room of the Week” posts especially.

      I love black and white for photography. Sometimes I’m drawn in to the colorful ones, but I always come back to b&w!
