Since 2007, the WOW project has been recruiting big-name artists—Julian Schnabel, Jeff Koons, and Elizabeth Peyton, just to name a few—to apply their works to everyday objects for the home. The profits go towards the Art Production Fund's non-profit mission, which involves expanding the audience for contemporary art and investing in major civic art projects.
Each of the beautiful designs seems to evoke a different feeling or statement associated with summer, travel, leisure, or the sea. Here are our favorites (images from left to right, above):
• Raymond Pettibon
• Julian Schnabel
• Karen Kilimnik
• Elizabeth Peyton
• Ed Ruscha
The towels cost $50 and are available directly from WOW.
