Public Offering 2016 "Eradicate Cultural Sharecropping"

Up until 
the last 60 years or so
fine art collecting was strictly 
a past time for the wealthy--
it has never been questioned 
that what is important in 
art is decided by their selection:
a vision sustaining western philosophies
that have evolved to include staging,
psychology, voyeurism, copying
and social work in an attempt to diversify 
yet maintain control of market supply 
and demand
as the number of artists and art appreciators grows steadily
and permeates all levels of society...

Jean-Paul Sartre:
I was not the one to invent lies: they were created in a society divided 
by class and each of us inherited lies when we were born. 
It is not by refusing to lie that we will abolish lies: 
it is by eradicating class by BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY (Malcolm X) 

Artists promoting art appreciation and patronage
outside the white-cube/art-world 
create an avenue for public participation
in the art making process and 
a social responsibility for the artist 
to create art that is legible and referentially 
significant for all society beyond its time of inception. 

Now is the time to bring new meaning to the term Public Artist!

"Initial Public Offering" ended officially today at midnight...
An online social art experiment that yielded both expected and unexpected results...

I had many interesting conversations about being an independent artist, how important all art appreciators are to the evolution of art and culture and how to create a visible and active artist/patron community that can influence the direction of that evolution. More than 600 people viewed the blog or videos during the original 30 day period...

Thank you to the Patrons that Became One of the 1,000 through this initiative... 

Thank you to Susan Goldman/Lily Press and Denaise Seals/Slingshot Video for collaborating with me!

Thanks to all my FaceBook Friends & Twitter Followers that liked and shared my posts...

While active participation in the project has ended, the site remains accessible and I'm starting to focus on my next venture, installing "Wishing on Stars..."
