the rules


These are some of the guidelines the Budget Gallery operates under:

  1. We use underutilized public spaces for our exhibitions.

  2. If work doesn’t sell at the opening, it stays, in public, unguarded, for at least 1 week.

  3. After the opening the unguarded work is sold on the honor system.

  4. All art work in our shows will be sold, stolen*, or vandalized** and we can not pre-determine the outcome.

  5. Our commission is arbitrary, optional, and determined by the artist.

*Having a work stolen is the highest honor of the Budget Gallery because it means someone wanted the work so badly they were willing to abandon personal and societal mores to acquire your piece of art. In our eyes, this may be considered a more valuable compliment to you than a simple monetary transaction.

**We suggest you consider vandalism a form a collaboration.

  1. Dear Godette,

    You attended one of my presentations on graffiti at ISU. I just wanted you and your legion of fans to know that my book “Graffiti L.A.: Street Styles and Art” was published by H.N. Abrams in May and would be of interest to any font wonks and graph-heads.
