Degenerate Art Foundation Threatens Smithsonian With Defunding

The New York Times says that Warhol Foundation wants degenerate art returned to the stalls of the Smithsonian.   Caught between a big mouth and a big pocketbook.  It just might be possible that Smithsonian could be encouraged to do the right thing by helping change people's minds on value.

Part of what makes Warhol's decadent legacy so powerful is the perception of value.  The best way to resist this is to continue make beautiful things, even the simplest things, and to fill them with love.

Please try to remember that one of the  aims of Marxist demoralization is to promote degenerate art in public spaces to degrade people's idea of what beauty is, and therefore truth.
Warhol Foundation Threatens to End Financing of Smithsonian Exhibitions
The Andy Warhol Foundation is threatening to stop its financing of Smithsonian Institution exhibitions if the institution does not restore a work of art that was removed from an exhibition after it drew attacks by the head of the Catholic League and some Republican members of Congress. The Warhol Foundation gave $100,000 to the Smithsonian for the exhibition, “Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,” at the National Portrait Gallery, from which the work was removed.
