Art subscriptions are a fun, easy, and relatively cheap way to build a collection while supporting artists and art organizations. In the Bay Area, The Present Group and The Thing Quarterly are two of the better known publications regularly delighting subscribers with well curated art delivered right to their doors (or mailboxes). Joining them now are our friends at Art Practical who are launching a new, limited edition Mail Art Subscription project.

The project features art from six artists, including Bay Area locals Anthony Discenza,  Alicia Escott, and Colter Jacobsen as well as artists from Sweden and Brooklyn. Starting in March, each month for six months subscribers get a letter from an artist containing something awesome. The project is in conjunction with AP's fiftieth(!) issue, Printed Matter, and supports future issues of Art Practical. Get art and support a great Bay Area art publication. Check it out!
