"Art, Money and the Renaissance" from Burning Man's blog

Check this out, a video that was posted as part of Burning Man's latest blog, Art, Money, and the Renaissance: Re-Imagining the Relationship.

One of my favorite quotes from the blog itself is:
So we’ve gone from a period where artists were hyper-aware of money, and open about it, to a period where artists talking about money endangers their status as “artists.” This would be understandable, even laudable, if artists were actually less worried about money, but since they’re not — since in fact we live in a time of profound economic uncertainty about artists and arts funding — this just won’t do.
Anyway, check it out. Would love to hear what folks think,
