Bringing Art To The Masses...Everyone Benefits

Featuring intended collisions of high fashion with high art, 
Sarah Jones writes about this phenomena in 
LUXURY DAILY Oct. 3, 2014 issue.

"Sotheby's Day Sales are organized by contemporary art specialists, who pick out pieces from both established and up-and-coming artists. Price points for work range from a few thousand to $4 million...Sotheby's has joined forces with online auctioneer eBay to develop a digital platform that enables customers to easily browse artwork, antiques and collectibles.

Bergdorf Goodman has previously used its windows to connect itself to the art world."

For centuries there have been discussions about the issue of exposing mass populations to the fine arts. The disparity of income, opportunity, education & psychology of this topic has been explored only to have it be determined, everyone benefits.

ANARCHY AND BEAUTY: William Morris and His Legacy, 1860-1960 runs October through January, 2015 at the National Portrait Gallery, London. This includes study of WE SIT STARVING AMIDST OUR GOLD Mural which focuses on the socialist values of Morris.
