Why 291?


291 was the name of the gallery created and run by famous photographers Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen.

"Stieglitz later used this space to introduce to the United States the early modernist art works from European artists - such as Henri Matisse, Auguste Rodin, Henri Rousseau, Paul Cezanne, and Pablo Picasso.

In its final years the 291 gallery featured American modern artists - such as John Marin, Arthur Beecher Carles, Bessie Buehrmann, Arthur Dove, Andrew Dasburg, and Oscar Bluemner. It also famously showed the early watercolors and charcoals of the young Georgia O'Keefe, who would later marry Stieglitz." - Wikipedia ("the 291")

I thought it would be cool to, for lack of a better word, give a shoutout to them and the artists that they supported.
