The book, aptly named ‘Art Is Dead’, is my perspective towards America’s tremendous lack of art appreciation. The book is written in a very universal way, allowing for high school level students to pick it up and question why art has arrived at this dismal state. The book is also intended for artistically incline people as well. I have found through my research that many artists are shocked that I could even consider art to be dead. The sad reality is that many artists are so steadfast in their own work and their own circle that it is difficult for them to see art on a macro scale. Sure artists will always be around, but are they revered? Are they appreciated? And more importantly, are they figureheads in society?
