The longer you stare at something, the more likely you are to get tired of it, unless it's a poster of What I Really Learned In College, and instead of classes, it's, like, beers and stuff! LOL! Keeping you from staring at the same old wall hangings, TurningArt
Recently launched outta the 'bridge from a Reading dude (and his art-gallery-directing-wife) itching to solve the problem of bare living room walls, TA's a clever Netflix-like service that lets you pay a flat monthly fee to borrow HQ prints of original art, rotating them at will, and trading work in for others before you get bored of looking at them -- so, now if they'd only come out with TurningWife! Crap, just kidding Summer!! Here's how it works: after signing up, you'll browse through hundreds of contemporary paintings from 50 hand-picked artists, filtering by style (traditional to conceptual), medium (oil, watercolor, collage), color, and price before adding your faves to an ever-growing queue; from there you pick a monthly plan based on when to rotate (two months, three months, whenever I damn well please) and choose the 19x23in reusable frame that comes with your first tubbed print; then, when you're done looking at A Post-Modern Take on Monet's Water Lilies just send it back and commence getting excited about...awwww, not A Post-Modern Take on Water Lilies 2!?! Available work includes a loosely American impressionist interpretation of a blue 56 Chevy Bel Air; Love Transcends which depicts two lovesick office mates pining for one another on opposite sides of an adjoining cubicle; and an aggressive-looking rooster standing next to a giant blue globe named Blue Ball with Stars -- subtitled, the Paul Giamatti Story
Because Dad says you can't rent forever, TA also offers an innovative discount program where each dollar of your monthly subscription fee earns you equal credits towards actually buying the art at up to 40% off -- much like that Got Milk chick's shirt. Man, what a cool poster!
