Moomin reads the Why Cheap Art? Manifesto aloud. One day he noticed it taped to the wall and read it with great enthusiasm!
â€œPEOPLE 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 canâ€™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 WORLD.
ART SOOTHES PAIN! Art wakes up sleepers! ART FIGHTS AGAINST WAR & STUPIDITY!
ART SINGS HALLELUJA! 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!
Pretty cool. I had just organized a reading at Modern Times Books in San Francisco called Manifesto!. Moomin and I share an enthusiasm for wild rhetoric! As he read the Why Cheap Art? Manifesto aloud I realized it’s the perfect introductory manifesto for kids!
