Having money = Art appreciation
Art is very unappreciated in the area I live. I think this is due to the economic situation. Only people that can easily meet their means are going to look at art and see its value. People in this area are focused on how their going to pay their bills and feed the kids. it is a mind wrenching task. therefore when a piece of art is seen, it may be slightly recognized or noted, but for the most part, ignored.
