Minted, a design marketplace that connects consumers with recognized artists, will produce an exclusive wall art collection that will sell through Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen. To debut in fall 2016, the collection will feature art for nursery, kid and teen rooms created by Minted’s community of independent artists.
From now through February 18, the partners have invited artists to send submissions to the Minted X Pottery Barn Kids & PBteen Wall Art Challenge. From February 19, Minted community members can vote for their favorite entries and, help Minted, Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen select the works that will ultimately be produced and sold as part of the collection. Selected artists win upfront cash prizes and commissions on all sales of their artwork.
“We believe in Minted’s mission to support independent artists, and we’re excited to collaborate with Minted to give our customers access to exclusively designed art,” said Sandra Stangl, president, Pottery Barn Brands. “Our customers have a strong appreciation for art and a keen eye for design, and this partnership offers another way to inspire great design for our customers.”
