Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys have launched an initiative utilizing their The Dean Collection, a contemporary family art collection, to give Artist the opportunity to start their careers/ business. The Dean Collection 20 St(art)ups will award $5,000 each to 20 artists from around the globe to curate their own show. In addition, the stars will let the Artist keep 100% of the proceeds from their show.
Swizz announced the opportunity in a variety of social media posts. He also explained the extent of the opportunity in these posts. About the initiative, Swizz says, “It doesn’t matter what medium you use as an artist.” He continues, “What if I told you that it doesn’t even have to be in the gallery? It can be any space that represents you.”
