“Let Them Eat Art”

December 13, 2011

A great column from Jeffrey Goldberg on a new museum of American art in Arkansas built with Walton family money.  You can now see the original of Norman Rockwell’s  Rosie the Riveter, a celebration of the emerging power of American women workers, in a museum built with money from Wal-Mart, which pays its 1.4 million workers an average of $8.81 an hour.
