Remember that little contest we had back in October to determine which design would be chosen for Hyperallergic’s very first t-shirt? Well, Duncan Alexander’s “T-shirts are the new galleries” took first prize, and now it’s for sale! The t-shirt, made out of a comfy 100% cotton (I can attest, I’m wearing one now), features Alexander’s slogan in our signature Hyperallergic font, and is made for those self-deprecating situations when a snarky dig at the contemporary art world is just what you need.
You know you’re going to spend money this holiday season even if it’s only a gift or two for friends, family or that special someone. So, why not spending money in a way that supports emerging galleries, craftspeople, artists, charities, or quality small businesses that are trying to do something different.
Here is our short guide to some ideas for creative and affordable gifts.
And the winner of our first Hyperallergic t-shirt contest is Duncan Alexander and his “T-SHIRTS ARE THE NEW GALLERIES” design, which garnered 43% of the vote. Congratulations, Duncan!
Thanks to the hundreds who voted. The brand new Hyperallergic t-shirt will be available for order at the end of this month.
