The Cubby is an online marketplace for art made by college students.
By shopping on The Cubby, you're supporting emerging artists, and purchasing one-of-a-kind pieces
of art, at an affordable price. The entire listing price goes directly to the artist
The Cubby boasts no fees, so selling is simple and art is accessible to all buyers.
The art world has notoriously high barriers to entry for both artists and buyers.
For student artists, even sites that claim to democratize art are filled with
professional competition that overwhelm students’ products. On The Cubby,
student artists grow their following and become better positioned to sell as a professional.
For appreciators of art, actual art purchases can sometimes remain inaccessible. Art galleries representing
emerging artists are increasingly hard to find, and even small galleries mark up prices by nearly 50 percent.
Major retailers have built inventories of budget-friendly artwork, but the products’
mass-appeal design and ubiquity dim the magic of owning a piece of art.
For shoppers decorating their dorm room, first apartment, or home who find only
mass retail art in their budget, The Cubby makes unique art pieces affordable.
Founded by college students, The Cubby reflects the perspectives of both student artists and
budget-conscious shoppers. As the first college art marketplace, The Cubby supports art creation
and appreciation by all.
