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.
