Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
In a daily experience filled with political pretense and lies, the suggestion that a renown museum sells "museum-quality reproductions" "starting at $30" is mind blowing fake. Imagine the museum advertisement testifies that this is "custom Art on Demand reproduction from the exhibition" when in fact it is another piece of trash not even worth what you pay for it.
Anyone ever wonder about this and all the other junk in the Gift shop?
I can't seem to recover from the misrepresentation. It seems more egregious in this political turmoil of Circular Logic, Alternative Facts and Web of Lies.
Here is another one. Even more sensitive.
Many of the nationally known museums in my area have featured sales that offer membership discounts for the artist made work being sold, yet the "membership discount" is taken from the artist's half of the retail price.
It seems like a misrepresentation to the member. Do they realize that the museum is not offering a discount to the retail price? Instead the discount is given the by artist/maker.
