About WOW (Works on Towels): Artist Towel Series 2009 is part of Art Production Fund‘s WOW (Works on Whatever) project. a unique collection of everyday items designed by artists. APF invites artists to experiment with the latest commercial materials and techniques to bring art off the walls and into homes as everyday objects. WOW introduces contemporary art to a larger community with revenues from sales supporting our non-profit mission. WOW works conceptually with APF’s program of expanding art audiences and helps fund additional major civic artworks.

They have all since sold out. No longer priced at only $50 and sold out at all the above links, you can find those that are still available here

100% of the profits go to support public art and they are so much fun, they make a fabulous and worthwhile gift.
