Society6 Launches Site For Artists

Los Angeles-based Society6 is launching an online site to help artists find patrons today, saying that it has created a platform which will help artists share their work and exchange opportunities and resources. The company, which was co-founded by former Passenger Co-founder and Chief Innovation and Marketing Officer Justin Cooper, is looking to help artists gain promoters and patrons. The site said it will provide "micro-grants" to artists, and will allow any individual, non-profit organization, or corporation to make their own grants to artists. Grants can be either in the form of money, or opportunities--such as providing free supplies or services to an artist.
