The time has come. Those empty, bland walls in your home just aren’t cutting it anymore, and you’re finally ready to give them a fresh look — not with another poster, but with some real art. There’s only one problem: Money is tight.

Not to fear, there is hope. According to Alex Goldstein, owner of the Fridge, an alternative art and performance space on Capitol Hill — and an avid collector himself — “Even really high-end artists tend to sell affordable versions of their work.” Goldstein estimates that he owns several thousand pieces of art, including hundreds of paintings and a wealth of sticker art.
