Yes, I know. It’s hard to believe. Could Detroit’s art’s scene ever become worse than it already was? Apparently so, says the Detroit News.
There was a debate on this very topic, here, back in June. Funny how people see what they want to see. I’m always told about someone who makes a living from their art. Of course there’s a few here. Unfortunately, we need more than a few successful artists in the area. Just like we need more than a few jobs in the area. Being able to point out one or two successful artists in the area doesn’t cut it. This may seem like a pessimistic view point, and maybe I should see the glass as half full, not half empty. Unfortunately, when it comes to the local art scene, the glass isn’t half full, or half empty, it’s just plain empty. And that’s not pessimism, it’s realism.
