Just as of this moment live in the Hub, UA's a rent-to-own collectors club where for 50 banknotes a month, you can assuage your fear of commitment by borrowing rather than buying original contempo works from up-and-coming artists, thus allowing you to experiment with all different types free from the fear of catching something permanently.
It works like this: after filling out a brief membership form that includes probing essentials like "what's a piece of art you recently fell in love with" (his magical singing voice?), you'll get down to business perusing their online gallery of more than 300 original works (no prints allowed) from 40-plus emerging artists, which's searchable by either artist or
Patricia Arquette's critically acclaimed television show medium and includes drawings, paintings, and photography. After settling on a piece that in no way looks like Art Garfunkel, they'll have it framed, delivered, and professionally hung in your crib, where for three months you can casually point out to friends that "it does kind of resemble the calligraphy-esque graffiti works of later-era Cy Twombly" before either maybe kinda thinking about possibly sending it back for another piece or applying 100 percent of your dues towards actually buying it.
Assuming you're more of an in-store shopper and/or in need of companionship, your UA fees also score you access to real-life members-only
jackets events, previews, and parties where you can mingle with artists, though just make sure to knock off The Clap(ping).
