Every year at UC Santa Cruz, the art department hosts a gala print sale. You can buy original works by UCSC artists for as little as five or ten dollars in all formats, from huge works on paper to greeting cards and t-shirts. I always felt the print sale was one of the best parts about living in Santa Cruz, and my home still has several prints I purchased there prominently displayed. The works available are an extraordinary range of styles and aesthetics, and it’s impossible to leave without buying something.
This year’s sale is June 6th and 7th (that’s Friday and Saturday!) on the UCSC campus. You can find more information here.
