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.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.

We’re here for you.
