Diego Rivera, Detroit Industry, 1932-3 — Detroit Institute of Arts
A mural, a museum, not a piggy bank.
Let’s please recognize that the mass media telling us it is pensions versus selling off the D.I.A. collection (as in this idiocy) [EDIT: or, critics who should know better], are offering a false choice. These people do not care one bit about pensioners, or about art. They care about juicing capital for private interest from anything and everything regarded as held in the public trust. They’re vampires. Art is real. Debt is not. Cross yourself and fight back.
