Wanted: Law Firm Art Consignments

The day of Toronto.

According to the blog, Above the Law, a young Toronto lawyer was desperate to fill his empty walls with art of high-repute. Unable to afford anything his superiors would not laugh at, this anonymous young lawyer posted an ad on Craigslist looking for artists who would loan him their two-dimensional works in exchange for exposure and, if lucky, the sale of the artwork. Unlike current gallery representations, the artist would keep 100% of the proceeds.

Above the Law has more on this story.
