The Art of Curation: A Contest!Curating art is an art in itself. While it takes talent, a keen eye, years of practice and determination to be a good artist, it also takes all of those elements and more for one to be a good curator of art. I decided I'd like to run a simple challenge that doesn't require you to make art, but rather requires you to put time and effort into putting together stellar collections of artwork here on DA.
A lot of time, thought and consideration can go into putting together a collection of favourites on DA. Your collections can help others discover artwork they might have never seen otherwise. Through the challenge I'm asking you to go out and really take the time to design outstanding collections of art you're eager for others to admire.
How does this challenge work?
Create a new collection of favourites on each of these themes. Yes, you must make a collection for every theme below, aka one collection folder per theme, aka 5 favourites folders total, all titled with the sam
Hope you like to be part of our wonderful community!

Poor quality of art.

Not legitimate stock tips /how to reportMany people ask me what this term means ¨not legitimate stock¨

3 - I used a PNG, and after
