5+5: Nora-Gomez Strauss. Public Art Advocate. Digital Doer. Queens Queen. August 19 2017


Secret friend crushes be damned. We’re putting it all out there. When we think someone is the coolest, we don’t shut up about it. Ergo, the office hasn’t been a quiet place to work since Nora Gomez-Strauss signed up to be part of our 5+5 series. Gomez-Strauss is one of our OG art collectors (spy her many 20x200 editions in this amazing Design*Sponge tour), and has made her own significant splash in the art world as the Public Art Fund’s Director of Digital Strategies. Before that, she slayed the scene as the Queens Museum’s social media maven. Someone who spreads the word about Art for Everyone? Our hearts are aflutter. Beyond those obvious overtures to our affection, Gomez-Strauss is also an amazing Twitter and Insta follow for her thoughtful art takes, her sharp political observations, and her own striking images. (Of course, the cute pics of her painfully *adorable* child don’t hurt. Hi Santi!!) Below, peep Gomez-Strauss’s five art picks + five Q+As. Who knows? Maybe you’ll form your own friend crush. – Team 20x200

5+5: Larissa Leclair. Photo Bookworm. Rockstar Realtor. July 15 2017


In our newest 5+5 interview we hit up art-supporting superwoman Larissa Leclair, whose triumphs in and out of the art world make most of us wonder if we’ve been seriously slacking off. For one, Leclair founded the Indie Photobook Library, a jaw-dropping collection (now in the safe-keeping of Yale University) that includes over 2,000 photobooks from around the world. She’s also an accomplished lecturer, award-winner, contributor to TIME Magazine’s “Best Photobooks of the Year”, vocal proponent of self-publishing photobooks and champion of emerging artists, and an avid art collector. Her newest venture? Redefining real estate as a brilliant realtor. Leclair’s endeavoring attitude even came across in her responses, a few of which you can peep below—thoughtful, poetic, and enthusiastic. This 5+5 feature is one you won’t wanna skim!  – Team 20x200

5+5: Anjelika Temple. Creative Dynamo. DIY Diva. Fly Mama. June 17 2017


In today's 5+5 we feature the exuberant and entrepreneurial Anjelika Temple, a 20x200 alum whose life and career has blossomed magnificently since her tenure with us back in the day. (As a nearly ten-year-old (!!!) company, “back in the day” really means something.) Anyone who follows her on Instagram knows: Anj makes California living look real good. By day she hustles her heart out as Brit + Co’s founding creative director. By night—and, we’ve gathered, many a jam-packed weekend day—she and her (adorable!) fam partake in all the goodness the Bay Area has to offer. Up now, she shares her arty predilections and favorite 20x200 editions with us. Read on for her selects!  – Jen Bekman
