Holy Smokes - I Bought a Bus!

And not just any bus, and beautiful blue crusademobile.  It's amazing. Well, it looks amazing. It lives in New Jersey and will be delivered to Atlanta in a few weeks. Lady Blue will go straight to my mechanic's garage for some shoring up and tweaking, and then we will work on converting it from a surf ride to an art bus.

This is so exciting. Thank you so much for your support and for allowing this most incredible first step to happen. Crusade away!!


Crusade fans - The Research Begins!

Today I met with Richard at R Lindwall International Automotive. I found Richard online a couple of months back when I was looking for VW experts in the Atlanta area.  He helped me figure out a rough ballpark figure for what it would cost to buy a van and outfit it for the Crusade.  I knew he was my man when he didn't even blink when I said, "I own an art gallery and know nothing about cars.  I want to buy an old VW van, build shelves inside for art, and drive around the country on a 10-week tour."  I think Richards are hard to come by.

He called me last week to say he had an old bus in his shop that he is fixing up for a customer and if I wanted, I should come by to look inside and get an idea for size.  I would have driven away in this one today if I could. Such a beauty.


Art & Power!

So thrilled and honored to be featured in the Atlantan's Art & Power issue!

Cool Intentions


Provocative old guard and ambitious new leaders. Masterpieces and can’t-miss marvels. This is Atlanta’s arts scene—and these are the 20 scene stealers changing the conversation.

Jennifer Schwartz is on a mission. This year, the 30-something gallery owner created The Ten (, a monthly online exhibit of 10 images with a low price point that entices new collectors to get their feet wet in investing in fine art photography. With the success of that project, she takes her show—Crusade for Collecting—on the road. “I am going on a 10-week, 10-city tour, where I do pop-up shows featuring works from incredible emerging photographers from across the country.” 1000 Marietta St. NW, 404.885.1080, jenniferschwartzgallery.‌com

This has been the most exciting adventure, and thanks to all of you, it is only just beginning.  I cannot thank you enough for your encouragement, support and pledges.  Truly - it means the world.

Crusade away!!


Down to the Final Hours - Rewards for Everyone!

Forty-three days ago I launched this crazy Kickstarter campaign to buy a van and travel around the country promoting art.  The enthusiasm, passion and support for this project has been beyond my wildest hopes, but we still have $1,700 to raise to make this crusade tour happen.

We are close, but if we don't make the full goal amount in the next 48 hours, this Crusade isn't going to get off the ground.  Ten weeks on foot isn't going to get the message out of the state!
