The broader economic implications of donating your art

The broader economic implications of donating your art | Felt | Scoop.it
Collectors, artists, and arts organizations are crippling the very institution they seek to encourage.
However, these art organizations are also undermining the very community they seek to support, and artist are complicit. Yes, that’s what I said. I know it’s inflammatory. I don’t mean to hurt feelings or make people wrong when all they’re trying to do is good. But try to see the broader economic implications. The current paradigm is not working. It’s time for a new paradigm.
Barbara Poole's insight:

I started being more selective in my donations years ago. I only donate to two now, my Alma Marta because they do a 50/50 split and aids action because I can't afford to give them as much money as I would like to.

Kealwork's wearable art is unlike anything you've ever seen. (Wearable animal headpieces made from natural materials; felted wool ewe, ram and goat hoods that transcend!
Barbara Poole's insight:

The artists work is filled with metphor and fantasy.  I can remember as a child prenteding to be an animal with scraps of fabric and sticks. The stories I loved were about transformation and to leave our human form and enter the primal world enriches our imagination ten fold.
