Green Your Art: Eco-Friendly Materials

Organic wood frame colored with eco-friendly dye Artists, those consummate preservers of beauty, seem to have a keen sensitivity about sustaining the planet. If you’re an art collector, aficionado, or appreciator, this week’s tips should help you shift your collection (or simply the way you see art) into a more earth-minded endeavor.

Tip #2: Buy Art Made of Green Materials

Yesterday we advised you to choose art made of recycled or reused materials. Today we’re acknowledging that a piece made with never-before-used media might appeal more to some collectors. If that’s the case for you, you can still green your art purchases by opting for works made of planet-preserving materials. Artist Aaron Chang uses earth-friendly dyes and organic wood frames. Art.com sells posters printed in planet-preserving ways, including on Forest Stewardship Council-certified paper, using soy-based ink. To learn more about artists who have gone green, connect with the L.A.-based Arts:Earth Partnership.
