    When it comes to art, I use what I call the “Farmer’s Test.”
    .
    If a farmer found it in his field would he hang it up as art, throw it on the scrap heap, or, if he needed a new board, whitewash it and use it on the floor of the chicken-coop.
    .
    Not much “art” gets by him! (Particularly “art” funded by tax dollars.)

    Most grant money is not from the government. If it was, more art would be political propoganda.

    @zoidknight

    Yet much grant money is from non-profits established by corporations as tax write-offs which is still using govt (mine and yours) monies (with apologies to those honorable groups doing legit endowment).

    If the voters decide to fund grants for the arts, then it is a democratic process. Some people think funding wars, and oil company or big business subsidies are immoral. It’s our elected representatives who decide.

    Actually, the transcendent gem every artist strives for is tenure, providing a nice income for life with little asked in return. Living off grants is idealistic by comparison.
