This week, a project by Jason Hughes, IMDA, was included in a New York Times Education Life slideshow that highlights the work of students whose art creatively solves a problem. One of only 17 featured artworks, Hughes’ limited edition Artistic Futures Savings Bonds aim to raise and sustain support for future artworks. He says, “they can be bought for $100 and increase in value every six months, to $250 in 10 years. Art patrons can trade in the bond toward the acquisition of a new work or hold onto it as an artwork itself.”

The piece was also to be included in an education supplement of the New York Times on Sunday, February 9. Learn more about Hughes’ artwork at his portfolio website.
