We're passionate about art and believe that art is an important and fundamental part of our society. Living with art and engaging with artists should be accessible to everyone, no matter where you live or whom you know. At Artspace, we're changing the way the world experiences art. Our mission is to help collectors and aspiring collectors discover, learn about and collect fine art. Our curators collaborate with top museums, galleries and cultural institutions to provide the best collection of contemporary art in the world. We offer limited editions and original works from the most recognized artists to rising stars and make them available for sale online, at affordable prices. Membership is free and grants our subscribers first access to our most coveted limited editions, enabling them to preview and collect these exclusive works before anyone else. The Artspace team has a deep appreciation for the positive role that artists, cultural institutions and non-profit organizations play in our society. Every single sale of artwork on the site directly supports an artist, institution or non-profit. By collecting with Artspace, you're helping to sustain creative culture around the globe as well as supporting important organizations that are dedicated to making the world a better place. What makes Artspace unique is that we bring you the finest selection of curated artworks that reflect the issues of our time. We're an art advisor – a trusted source for information, access and exclusive works you can't find anywhere else. When you collect with us, not only are you collecting the most important artists working today, you're making a good investment: an investment in art, an investment in artists and an investment in yourself. Most of all, we hope you will find that collecting and living with art is something you enjoy and continue to do for a lifetime. Happy Collecting. The Artspace Team

What differentiates Artspace from the other affordable online galleries we've seen populating the Internet lately? Like many of those sites, they're a source for affordable prints and photographs, but they're also a place where you can find editions by well-known artists like Sol LeWitt and Eric Fischl. You don't have to be a member to buy, but membership grants you access to their week-long private sales, which feature deep discounts on contemporary art.

Artspace's collections are curated by people who "collaborate with top museums, galleries and cultural institutions." Their partners range from the Studio Museum in Harlem to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. A portion of all sales goes towards either living artists or non-profit groups and institutions.
