  1. Michael,
    First off, I also went to Art & Design and I still love art. I enjoyed reading your post, I know it’s a bit tongue and cheek and not meant to be entirely serious. However I don’t agree in regards to Art & Design being the best art school, that’s merely subjective. Also, New York no longer leads the world in the arts, Santa Fe, San Francisco, Portland, even Berlin have a growing arts scene. In case you haven’t noticed, NYC is expensive, artists can’t really afford to live here anymore and have moved out and I’m not talking about trust fund baby wanna-be artists out in Williamsburg. :) I do agree with you in regards to the GOP cutting funding for the arts, it’s been going on for a while. Btw, Have you visited the High School of Art & Design lately? I think the students are down to 1 or 2 periods of art a day. You can thank Mayor Mike for that, he wants every student to merely pass standardized tests and sees no value in an arts education. For us to think Art & Design is still the same great school it was, we would fooling ourselves. I will now get off my soapbox.

    • John,
      We agree to disagree regarding where the dominating art scene is and the cites you mention are producing world class artists but New York they are not. I’m going to make it a point to visit A&D the next time I’m in New York and can spare an afternoon. Thanks for your insight and I wish you well.
