During a recession, it’s always good to think outside of the box, and upstart art consultancy nAscent Art New York is doing just that with what they describe as “the world’s first art gift registry”. Launched at bridal event last month, the programme works like a normal gift registry, except instead of buying a butter dish or gravy boat, friends and family of the happy couple are invited to chip in to purchase works of art chosen by the newlyweds. nAscent Art represents some 50 emerging artists in New York and the enterprising organisation also offers a rotating art rental service and gift certificates.
