Bring great art (shows) home with you. If you ever wondered what happened with all those beautiful posters that Museums hang for exhibitions, you don't want to know the answer. Because of logistical and copyright issues, they used to go straight to landfill. Nick and Nora Weiser, who founded BetterWall , have changed that.
From an early job at the Chicago Art Institute (Nora), the couple stumbled into finding a way to preserve, sell and share the profits with the museums. Now a BetterWall is the exclusive distributor of museum banners from around the world. You can shop by color, style or artist, and the website does a great job of showing the works in stylish settings so you can get an idea of the scope and impact the images will have. The banners run around $300-$800 and are authentic, limited-edition pieces. (Thanks, Dante!)
