Video: Jerry's Infomercial

Jerry talks about how to become a collector and supporter of the map

Why collect Jerry's Map?

When I originally posted Map prints on Ebay about ten years ago I imagined that people would buy contiguous prints to mount on a wall, gradually adding to their assemblages. The concept was that they would buy modular art, creating their own sections of the Map.

To date over a thousand of these prints have been sold but mostly as individual, random panels rather than coherent groups. Several people have, on the other hand, made installations of Map sections ranging from 20 to 40 panels. The prints and originals are easily wall-mounted using poster mount tabs and can be protected, if necessary, by covering them with clear plastic.

In order to encourage collecting we have made the prints very affordable. Here are some of the items you can find in my Ebay store

Original panels $142- $220
Signed prints $10-$20
Custom prints by request $30
Second edition Map poster $36

But why collect them? Because you just like them? Because you believe in and want to support the project? Because you think that one day they will be valuable? Any of those reasons is valid. Only time will tell if the "Antiques Roadshow" people are making your grandchildren gasp in disbelief!

Watching people scurry around Manhattan recently gave me a new take on my map.

Where to show?

Where shall I show the Map? Next year, 2015, is more or less booked with four sure shows and a couple of tentative ones. But 2016 is completely open. One novel idea would be for me to show the entire opus on a basketball court! That might be cool if there are bleachers or a balcony. Who's got one? Your high school?

Anyway let me know if you know of a space or know of a gallery or museum near you that might want to exhibit my work.

Video: But is it art?

Someone on the internet recently claimed that I didn't consider my map as a work of art. This is my reflection.

Jerry's 99 cent Sale!

Thanks for all your interest in the videos that Tyler has been doing! The "Mixing Paint" one alone has had almost 1300 page views. Very gratifying!

The Ebay store, on the other hand, has been left in the shadows. We don't need Ebay to pay the rent, but we do rely on it to help pay for the endless printer cartridges and some of Tyler's meager salary.

So, to try to stir up a little monetary feedback we are launching a 99 cent sale. Map prints that are being relisted are up for auction starting at under a buck. Time to start collecting! Click on that link at the right and have a look!
