When museums face budget cuts, should they turn to their art works for income? For that, we consult Blake Gopnik, critic at large at Artnet News and contributor to the NY Times. We talk about the valuation of art, opportunity cost of selling, and what this means for the next generation. 

For more works by Gopnik, visit blakegopnik.com.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
