Building on its long history of supporting the arts, Gap has introduced Artist Editions T-Shirts, a limited edition collection of T-shirts designed by 13 of today's most influential contemporary artists, including Chuck Close, Jeff Koons, Marilyn Minter, Kiki Smith, Cai Guo-Qiang, Barbara Kruger, Ashley Bickerton, Kenny Scharf, Glenn Ligon, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Kerry James Marshall, Hanna Liden, and Sarah Sze.

"We're honored to have the opportunity to partner with such a distinguished and diverse group of artists," says Marka Hansen, president of Gap brand North America. "This collaboration celebrates the intersection of art and fashion and enables people to access contemporary art in a different way. These 13 works of art speak the importance of creative expression and individuality, and we can't wait for our customers to experience them in their own way."

Gap worked in close partnership with New York's Whitney Museum of American Art and Art Production Fund to create the collection with the 13 artists, who are all previous Whitney Biennial participants. The Whitney Biennial is a special exhibition held every two years at the Whitney Museum of American Art that features the most important contemporary art in the United States. Gap is a proud sponsor of the 2008 Whitney Biennial, currently on view at the Whitney until June 1, 2008.

The limited edition collection is available exclusively at select Gap stores in the United States, Canada, the UK, and franchise markets, as well as online in the United States at gap.com. It's also available at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and at Colette, a Paris-based boutique.
