Episode 2: Creating Ubiquity in Art with Carter Cleveland (Artsy)


In this episode I am joined by Carter Cleveland (CEO of Artsy). We discuss Carter's origin story, getting rejected from Y Combinator, proving his detractors wrong, Artsy's Art Genome Project, being guided by first principals, advice to first time art buyers, opening up art to the masses, and enjoying the moment in life. 


I am joined in Office Hours by Ryan Kulp from Artspot.io. Artspot is a service that helps artists sell their work in local venues and Ryan wrote in wanting to know the best ways he can best scale onboarding new venues.


Check out Carter's Wall Street Journal op-ed and Jonathan Meese's Artsy page (Carter's new favorite artist).
