The following is the entire text of a blog post made two weeks ago by Jen Bekman, self-described "Founder + CEO @ 20x200. Shopgirl @ Jen Bekman Gallery. Hey, Hot Shot! proprietress. Art for everyone evangelist. Opinionated lady":
Today also happens to be 20x200's birthday. It's been an admittedly weird year for my beloved Art for Everyone initiative, but months of insane stress + drama—tempered by generous doses of dogged persistence, irrational optimism + the unconditional support of loved ones, friends + colleagues—have resulted in me getting my baby back. There's still a lot (al lot) to do, but we're in full-on reboot mode and hope to be online again soon. Hallelujah + amen.
So it appears that 20x200 might return. The site, if you don't know of it, offered original art, in some cases by famous artists, for as little as $20. Prints at that price were limited to 200 copies, hence the name, pronounced "twenty by two hundred." The venture apparently imploded early this year. I never bought from them—the ones I wanted always sold out too fast (having had some experience in that arena, I have to say I like the idea of, say, 80x200 a lot better. This sort of business model is harder than it looks). But we're in favor of the basic idea, as you may know.
And by the way, may I just say I love this Christian Chaize project.
