Instructions for Buy What You Love 2017



The Rema Hort Mann Foundation invites you to participate in Buy What You Love 2017!


Please submit to Buy What You Love! The Rema Hort Mann Foundation (RHMF)’s annual Art
Auction, a one-night exhibition in New York City that features over 200 emerging and established artists. Buy What You Love, is a commissioned project of original 8.5 x 11 inch works on paper. Each donated work will be exhibited anonymously for collectors and art buyers. Upon purchasing the work at the auction, we reveal the artist to the buyer and encourage them to connect with the artist… you.

Submit in a few ways:

Request a packet: In this packet you will receive three sheets of RHMF archival paper. You can do whatever you want to the sheet provided- draw, cut, collage, or sculpt, just make sure that it measures flat at 8.5 x 11 inches, and that you use the original paper in someway. To request a packet today,  click here and fill out an online request form.

Create your own packet and send: Use 1-3 pieces of 8.5 x 11 inch archival paper and do whatever you want to the sheet and submit.


  1. Create 1-3 works with 8.5 x 11 inch archival paper.
  1. Once you’ve finished, do not sign the front of the work. Print and sign your name on the back of the work. Additionally, on the back, include the Title, Date, Medium, and your contact information and/or website.
  1. Take a picture of your work and send the jpeg image to, with the Title, Date, Medium, your contact information and/or website.
