"My boys' current bedroom reflects who they are. It is fun, colorful,
and joyous. I also wanted my sons to have their own experiences living
with contemporary art, so I listened to their opinions when selecting
the pieces in the room." -Out There: Design, Art, Travel, Shopping by
Maria Brito, 2013.

"My decision to get my son, Sean (almost 8 now - was 5 at first involvement) was based on my desire to have him start to experience art in a variety of formats from a young age. As a gallerist and collector, I am constantly making sure he is exposed to my world and I loved and embraced the possibility for him to go on a guided educational tour of some of the most forward international contemporary art."

"With my kids, all their toys, clothes, taste, seem to be so

mami, more paintings please!!! "
Erica Domesek, Founder of PSIMadeThis
"I love my Libby Black alphabet print. It hangs above my desk, and
every time I look at it- it makes me smile!"

We've got big, adorable news! We are all bubbles and smiles about Mickalene Thomas's Portrait of Priscilla. The edition was created by Mickalene and LittleCollector exclusively for the MoMA, but we held the few last remaining prints for our collectors. This colorful rendition is an adorable addition to any wall space. Hurry, there are only a few of these limited edition prints left before they are gone forever. We got the chance to interview Priscilla herself, along with darling Mickalene. Check out the interview on the blog! But Wait, There's More!

Major B and Mr. Pop were so popular that we just had to bring them back for more playdates, and Kusama's Pumpkin was on the...
