American hip hop recording artist and record producer Swizz Beatz has long been a huge supporter of the arts, with his No Commission Art Fair event; a combination art exhibition, speakeasy, hangout and concert music. Now, his target is budding artists all over the world.
He announced today that The Dean Collection, an arts organization started by the producer and his Grammy-winning singer wife, Alicia Keys, is launching the Dean Collection 20 St(Art)ups, which will give 20 fledgling artists $5,000 each to fund an art show!
With free reign to produce whatever they wish, successful participants will also be able to keep all proceeds from commissioned work.
