Art in every home (and business)
A Visionary Society Project
Art, creativity and beauty is a natural part of everyone's life. We need to expand our concept of art, the way it is used and the way it is available to the population. Should original art be available only to the wealthy? We need to make it less expensive and more freely available. To begin, let's put one piece of art in every home!

Overview
Art, creativity and beauty is a natural part of everyone's life. We need to expand our concept of art, the way it is used and the way it is available to the population. Should original art be available only to the wealthy? We need to make it less expensive and more freely available. To begin, let's put one piece of art in every home!
 
 
Project Details
 
There are many ways we can produce more art. The availability of art is often suppressed in order to keep prices high and to make it exclusive. Let's make it inclusive. Let's uncover the old art stashed away in basements and attics. For example, original lithographs, engravings, woodcuts can be produced in much greater quantity.
Project Type & Period

Resource in "Art in every home (and business)"
 
"Art is not found only in the painter's studio or in the halls of a museum, it also has its place in the store, the shop, the factory, and the home...

In fact, when art is reserved as the province of professional artists, a dangerous gulf develops between the fine arts and the everyday arts. The fine arts are elevated and set apart from life, becoming too precious and therefore irrelevant. Having banished art to the museum, we fail to give it a place in ordinary life. One of the most effective forms of repression is to give a thing excessive honor."

Thomas Moore, "Care for the Soul."

Impromptu Opera in market
Sacla' the Pesto Pioneers planted five secret opera singers disguised as casual shoppers and store staff among the groceries, who broke into song, bringing the London supermarket to a standstill with a rousing rendition of the Italian classic Funiculì, Funiculà. Link Edit
