“the ‘WHY CHEAP ART?’ manifesto”Posted: May 19, 2011
PEOPLE have been THINKING too long that
ART is a PRIVILEGE of the MUSEUMS & the
RICH. ART IS NOT BUSINESS !
It does not belong to banks & fancy investors
ART IS FOOD . You cant EAT it BUT it FEEDS
You. ART has to be CHEAP & available to
EVERYBODY. It needs to be EVERYWHERE
Because it is the INSIDE of the
ART SOOTHES PAIN !
ART WAKES UP SLEEPERS !
ART FIGHTS AGAINST WAR & STUPIDITY !
ART SINGS HALLELUJA !
ART IS FOR KITCHENS !
ART IS LIKE GOOD BREAD !
ART IS LIKE GREEN TREES !
ART IS LIKE WHITE CLOUDS IN THE BLUE SKY !
ART IS CHEAP !
