Dead Tree Media Incites Kansas City Creative Class 1% Artsy Fake-Ass Controversy!!!

In yet another cynical move . . . Dead Tree Media attempts to create a faux controversy among local artsy denizens who normally don't read the paper anyhoo . . . Here's their blub so you don't have to bother looking @ a Nebraska Furniture Mart Ad: "Kansas City’s biggest public art commission in years has just been awarded to an Iowa artist for a creation to enhance the new East Patrol police station. But with 61 applicants for the lucrative commission, only one artist was from the Kansas City area. The situation has reignited a debate that surfaces nearly every time the city awards a major One Percent for Art project. Why don’t more local artists participate, and should the city do more to encourage that participation?"

That 1% law can be a fucking goldmine. Make some lame crap worth $50 and you are rich. Local artists are stupid not to get involved.

No artist in his or her right mind wants to be involved with the city....
