Art for the Masses

Florida born artist Vincent Serritella is on a mission to make art accessible for everyone. After attending the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, Serritella spread his wings in the art world but found something rather disturbing. Art had become “out of reach for the general public” said Serritella. It was no longer valued as a form of expression and beauty, rather a commodity for barter.

So, Serritella set out on Project 365 where original art could become accessible for everyone. Everyday, for an entire year, Serritella created and gave away an original drawing. During this time he created a book documenting the pieces and his journey. His kick starter campaign to fund the production for 1,000 books is underway now!
