[Noisebridge-discuss] Offering small art grants for artwork on our blank walls

I have some canvas works looking for a wall to hang on.

Another option would be to try and have the artists' works sold so that it
keeps the walls changing, takes NB out of the "Do we pay them?" loop, and
also provides a way for artists to get both visibility and profit from
their work.

You might also want to put a time limit on how long the works stay up so in
case no one buys them, you still can rotate the work. But, that implies you
have a backup of artists wanting to hang work on the walls.
