MoMa admission

The New York Times > Arts > Art & Design > What Is the Value of Priceless Art? Debate Continues on $20 Admission: "Mr. Lowry said he was not surprised by protests of the $20 admission and defended the fee, saying the museum receives no operating money from the government.

'If you think that museums should be free, campaign for a government that will support that,'' he said in a telephone interview yesterday. 'We're in a country where there is a cost for culture.''" wrote Carol Vogel.

If we follow the business model of the Lowry side we will have high cost stores of art for the rich and Wal-mart stores of art for everyone else. The idea is- if you can't afford it- to bad!
