Mint Your Own Minter
The nonprofit RxArt is dedicated to bringing art into hospitals and health care facilities to raise patients’ spirits. But it’s nice to remember that the charity doesn’t observe only the see-but-don’t-touch approach to fine art. In addition to commissioning installations, RxArt also publishes an annual coloring book, illustrated with line drawings from such artists as Marilyn Minter, Laurie Simmons, Richard Prince, and Christian Marclay, to distribute to the younger clients it serves. This year’s edition, sponsored by Warby Parker, includes peel-off stickers by Ai Weiwei and a pair of cutout glasses by Parker, too. Want to get your hands on one? In addition to being donated to children in RxArt’s participating facilities, it is also sold to benefit the organization on RxArt.com and at Warby Parker outlets nationwide beginning November 13. Minter’s and Simmons’ pages debut exclusively here. A little crayoning goes a long way.
