Hippville is a fully-integrated online marketplace for buying and selling affordable and original emerging art. We consider ourselves a social enterprise, with a mission to make art more accessible, while simultaneously putting more money in the hands of diverse artists. We have two distinct customers - artists and buyers, and our solution addresses unique challenges faced by both groups.

For the average consumer, buying art is hard. Galleries are intimidating and expensive. Buying online can require hours of scouring and sifting through clutter.

Many artists struggle to make a full-time living because gallery representation is rare, and often about connections and luck. The internet is saturated and finding a target audience is challenging. Not to mention, the traditional art world is seriously lacking when it comes to gender, ethnic, socioeconomic, and otherwise diverse representation....
