Are History Museums popular? July 7, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Culture History Mythology.

Once I was asked why History Museums have become so popular while Art Museums have not.

Well, here’s what I think >

“My experience has been that the visual arts are seen, not just in the Art Community but in general, as an appendage or amusement. That’s very disappointing to me. We know a lot more about the ancient Greeks or ancient Egyptians through the art that articulated who they are, rather than their businesses or government, those things that are more ephemeral”.

What do you think? Post your comments.
