Musea E-mail Club #471 Trends of the Art Revolution

Before this week's message, here is a link to my 60th video.
It is a very very short one minute video - a poem video! on youtube.

If there is anyone else who has experimented with poem videos, let me know.

MESSAGE

One positive thing the economic slowdown has done is advance the art revolution. And even though it is a revolution without a title yet, we can see some general trends.

Look for these new directions in all the arts:

A back to basics approach that supports innovation and quality over promotion.
Art that is less corporate
Art that is less a consolidation of big companies into a few hands, and more a number of small companies competing.
Art that celebrates all the classic art of the past and ties it in with the new technology.
Newer types of venues for selling art or performing art that are less corporate more experimental.
Arts prices (concerts, cd's, dvd's theater, film) coming down.
More art centers that cover all the arts.
Less one type of art, art buildings (a single art museum, a single concert hall, a single film theater, etc.)
Less trendiness more honesty in all arts.
And overall a golden age in the arts.

There is yet no official name for this new movement in all the arts. It's an inchoate revolution for too much of the population to understand or grasp - though strangely enough, the provincial and backward city of Dallas is on the cutting edge!
