Cathedral of Shit

has taken a well earned GAP year

£19,000,000. That’s Right. 19 Million Pounds.

Posted by cathedralofshit on April 1, 2010

You know what – I’m going to say it. Don’t try and stop me, I’m going to spell it out.

Whilst the world (okay, Britain) goes doolally for the Olympics, the majority of art-fans, (particularly the art-world, who, let’s be honest, aren’t synonymous with sporting excellence) would love to see no tower at the Olympics, but instead 19 million smackers siphoned into arts organisations around the UK. There I said it.
We even wouldn’t mind if the ICA got a bit of that.

That’s for YOU Olympic Park people.

Just think what you could do with £19m…..
£190,000 for 100 British arts organisations.
1900 solo exhibitions.
237.5 artists’ monographs.
1731.2 dynamic gallery websites
380 worthy education programmes
42,222,222.2 Chunky Caramel Kitkats

Here’s that picture again. You choose – Tower or Kitkat? Tower or Kitkat?
