MINNEAPOLIS, MN, JUNE 13, 2017 – General Finance and Development, Inc. (OTC Markets: GFDV) announced today that wholly owned subsidiary Art Force, has launched a new Fine Art Subscription Program.

“Fine art for $1 per day” is the new tagline for Art Force’s SmartArt Subscription Program.

After realizing that many of the organizations Art Force wanted to work with felt that fine art was a bit steep for their budget, and they wanted to find a way to make it affordable.

They also noticed that there was so much emerging talent in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area and they wanted to find a way to help distribute their work. The program was created to help solve these two problems.

The clients pay a small monthly fee in order to lead up to actually owning the pieces selected from the online showcase. There are 3 options for how much the payment is depending on the artwork category selected. Starting at $33 per month, or a dollar a day, Art Force found a way to make local artwork as affordable as possible and flexible for any budget. The categories include framed fine art prints, original fine art and a high end category. [Read More]
