the art of steal

looking for a good documentary? watch the art of steal. all about the barnes collection.

barnes was such a progressive thinker. he put art from all over the world, from different times all on an equal plain. i love the way he set up his collection. in the twenties, he was saying that we're all the same--or rather, we all experience life the same. plus, he shared his collection with the working man and didn't want it corrupted by the high society. its a bummer his ideas were not carried through after he died.

"art isn't something that's separate from life. art is life."

i will have lots of art in my house. my house will be a work of art.
