For those of you in the USA who will be receiving a check from the government as part of the recent stimulus package – consider using the money to invest in American culture by supporting the arts. Depending on your economic status, of course, even a wee bit of the money could buy a print from your favorite artist, handmade jewelry from an artist’s etsy shop, a DVD of short films from an underground filmmaker, and download an album from an online band. Or try a night out at a locally owned restaurant.
Most people want to buy a bigger TV, a new game console, or go clothes shopping. The economic stimulus package is designed to encourage spending and stimulate our economy but most of the things Americans buy are manufactured overseas. And due to quality issues, most of it doesn’t have much of a shelf life. And a piece of art will last a lifetime. I know it sounds cheesy but it is true.
Please consider buying art and contributing to the artists who will build up the American culture as opposed to taking away from it.
