Are you an overworked and underpaid artist? Join the club.
Inspired by the Who Pays Writers? Tumblr, Kyle McDonald of F.A.T. Lab and a team of other developers have launched Who Pays Artists?, an open-submission site to let the world know who pays artists. Just 279 people have contributed thus far—so AFC’s recruiting you to help this site live up to its potential. It’ll take you about a minute to submit.
On the site, you’ll notice that out of the artists who’ve been paid, a sizable chunk of them have been paid by corporations.
For the moment, galleries, museums, and other art institutions are sorely lacking. Is it because most people generally know they don’t pay? Or does this site need more contributors? For the moment, we’re going with the latter. A world of better information is just a click away.
