At the PSFK Conference San Francisco 2008, Jen Bekman (20×200) talks about the trends she sees in art and artists’ use of technology to connect with art-lovers and buyers.  Since opening her online and offline art galleries, Jen has witnessed (and encouraged) a new movement of artists, themes and styles.
