Moomin reads the Why Cheap Art? Manifesto aloud. One day he noticed it taped to the wall and read it with great enthusiasm!
“PEOPLE 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 can’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!
