Art reviews

Tyler Green wrote that there was a lack of art coverage in some papers last weekend.


Is the lack of visual art coverage because there is nothing to report? Is there a true superstar after Picasso? I have wondered for some time why the art world is in trouble. If the average movie costs $63 million to produce and market, that is where the culture is. "What the Bleep" which I saw last Sat. seems to explore all the basic issues that the visual art world could, who are we and what are we doing? What are artists giving the public to excite them?

Sadly we seem stuck in a love of the past, i.e.. Barnes. While artists are scraping the bottom of the barrel for the scrapes of cultural funding.
