Art as investment rather than art

Patriactionary

Ugh. Twitter is promoting this tweet:

Yeah, no thanks.

If you enjoy an artwork and can afford it, buy it and enjoy it.

If you are wealthy, own many artworks, and wish to give something back to your community, donate some of your collection to an art gallery / art museum, or at least lend it out.

But I wish people would stop treating art as an investment, to be bought and sold, rather than enjoyed and appreciated.

Philistines.

Aarggh.
