Art for Money's Sake
10 January 2018 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

1/9/18. A decent inside look into the moneyed world of Art. It's ironic that the artists who create the works usually spend years in poverty, and some even a lifetime, but others manage to make lots of money off them. Yes, a whole industry devoted on monetizing creativity.
