Art is special. It is not like a car, a washing machine or a pair of sneakers; simple commodities that wear out over time. Art is quite the opposite. With each exchange of hands the value of art increases. As art is shared by more and more people, its power grows.
How does this happen?
When art is shared, the artist’s vision becomes further etched in the world. Quite simply, as more people see the art, the art commands a bigger place in the world.
Think about the way we use the term “gifted” to describe a talented artist. Think about the artwork itself as the gift. Think about sharing the gift.
What is art worth? A lot.
