What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the Raven? Is it the coffee? The food? The books? The comfy couches? For some folks, it’s the art.
Recently we rearranged things a bit, and people noticed that their favorite pieces were missing. Some panicked and worried they’d been sold. They confessed to me that part of their Raven experience was visiting their favorite piece that they dreamed of owning someday.
For one particular patron, when she learned that her favorite piece hadn’t been sold, just stored, she decided to pull the trigger and buy it for herself.
Some of the pieces that adorn our walls are not for sale, or priced so high that the artist isn’t really ready to get rid of them (i.e. me). One of the Raven’s missions is to bring creativity to our community. We are a staff of artists, musicians and thespians, so the arts are near and dear to our hearts.
Keeping with this calling, we’ve decided to make art prints of some of our most popular pieces available to the public. Applicable pieces now have an orange tag that says, “ART PRINTS, $10 ea.”, so if you have a favorite now’s your chance to own one of your very own. Your server can assist you on your next visit. Cheers!
P.S. They make great gifts too.
