||Conversations on Collecting is a
virtual salon where art collectors and their champions come together
to discuss their shared passion. Its goals are twofold: to celebrate
the approaches taken by a wide spectrum of avid collectors while showing
how easy and exciting art collecting can be for those who have not
yet started down that path.
Conversations take the form of a monthly, edited digest where participants
send in comments and ideas in response to a suggested topic then receive
a single monthly newsletter by email. Participants may contribute
as often or as seldom as they wish and may retain their anonymity
and their privacy.
Conversations on Collecting is designed to gather stories,
points of view , and perspectives for a project that may take the
form of a book or other published material in the future. For now
it is a way to build community and to share ideas. As the conversations
grow in size and depth, so too will this web site.
It is our passionate belief that encouraging greater demand for original
art among a broader segment of the public is a vital and effective
way to improve this nation's cultural climate.
