“Make An Artist A Millionaire: $2 Art”

Phase three, if you will, of Make an Artist a Millionaire (2008-2015) was “$2 Art”. Part of the original concept of this project was that the money would be donations, and not solicited in exchange for something from me. This was important for several reasons: to reinforce the concept that artists deserve to be millionaires as much as people in any other profession; that making art to sell within this project would be jumping the gun; and it would defeat the purpose of trying to establish a day job-free environment. This may not make immediate sense, but to make this project into simply another job would defeat the purpose. “$2 Art” was then a compromise: sell rapidly executed pieces on cheap materials.
