Reframing art takes a bit more time than that, but the principle is the same: a little change can make a huge difference.
As a big R.E.M fan, I was thrilled to see a photo of lead singer Michael Stipe come up at auction during a benefit for the Toledo Arts Commission my husband and I attended in 2000. Taken by fashion designer Todd Oldham, it was said to have been featured in Rolling Stone Magazine. I bid on it and won. What could be better than a keepsake from a favorite band that benefitted a great local cause?
You’d never know it spent nearly two decades in a basement.
