The WHY CHEAP ART? manifesto
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 can’t 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 AND STUPIDITY !
ART SINGS HALLELUJAH !
Art is for kitchens !
ART IS LIKE GOOD BREAD !
Art is like green trees!
Art is like white clouds in blue sky !
ART IS CHEAP !
-Bread and Puppet, Glover, Vermont, 1984
