The Profit of Art was launched shortly after a statement was made by the former UK Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport. The Secretary of State asserted that the art community must make the case for public funding by focusing on its economic impact. The purpose of this site is to present the opposing view.
When we experience art we focus not on the material, but on the inner worlds of aesthetics, metaphor, meaning and feeling.
Art explores and confirms the human condition. Art is not about the meager world of economics, but rather our attention should be on its value and potential to enrich us beyond the material world.
