To celebrate the launch of Minted’s new art prints business, the company’s CEO/Founder Mariam Naficy recently hosted a chic art-themed party at her San Francisco home.
Each wall in Naficy’s house featured a group of Minted’s new limited edition art prints, which were curated for the evening by Silicon Valley leaders and design celebrities, such as Christy Turlington Burns (she is the founder of Every Mother Counts, which receives 50 percent of the proceeds from May and December 2012 sales of Minted’s children’s and nursery art), Marissa Mayer, Alison Pincus, Jeremy Stoppelman, Tabitha Soren and Victoria Smith.
Among the guests were Twitter’s Dick Costolo, Restoration Harware’s Gary Friedman, Bare Escentuals’ Leslie Blodgett, Baby Center’s Tina Sharkey, Brit Morin, Elad Gil, and Erin Martin.

Minted’s art prints and wall art are created by a global community of independent artists, who participate in ongoing design competitions to have their designs selected for the site. All art prints are printed in limited edition on museum-quality cotton rag archival paper with archival ink and are offered in a variety of sizes and colorways. Each print comes with an artist’s card containing the artist’s statement and certificate of authenticity.
