Calendars are a great way to add some art to a creative space like a kitchen, playroom or office. You do not have to live with it for longer then a year and you do not need to spend the time and money on framing it!
If you like the artwork enough you can always cut it out and keep it when the year is up.
I live in Washington so I am enjoying the works of a local artist Nikki McClure. I encourage you to seek out local artists in your area and try out some of their work on your walls in this temperary way.
