  1. It seems that many art museums across the country are concerned about how to better engage the public. I see many ideas and strategies for doing this other than offering the lesser known artists in the community a venue for their work. Isn’t it possible to do both; exhibit the greats in the same building as the poor slobs who are still struggling? Many locals might actually pay to see local talent given a chance for the bigs.
