The Itkowitz & Harwood Empty Walls Itinerant Art Initiative ("EWIAI") is a unique exhibit featuring the talent of up and coming artists.
In 2010 we reinvented our office space, opening up our main floor and filling it with natural light. But the walls were barren. We could have invested in pricey art or tacky inspirational office prints. Instead we chose to highlight the work of local artists and photographers.
Through our EWIAI, we began inviting artists and photographers with some otherwise itinerant pieces to exhibit their work on our walls. So far we are privileged to be displaying and enjoying the works of twenty amazing artists and photographers. We are also thrilled to report that two of the works sold while they were hanging on our walls. (I&H keeps none of the profits!)
We began EWIAI as merely a clever solution to the problem of bare walls. But the program has delivered so much more than we expected. The walls have come alive with this authentic work. We are eager to thank these artists and to share what we have created with our friends."
