Artistry
I could be smarter and a better artist.
$38,000 would buy:

  • Enough wood, glue and nails to make 3,800 stretcher bars

  • 3,800 tubes of oil paint

  • 4,470 movie admissions

  • 904 years of The New Yorker

  • 826 years of ArtForum

  • 1,900 hardcover books

  • 4,470 museum admissions

Depressing, isn't it?    </end>
