The article discusses the author's views on art criticism and how to encourage more of it. According to the author, the art is never as good as it was with the great masters of the past, since no one cares about it anymore, no one is interested in the struggles of the artist, and no one buys as much art as they once did. The Jerome Foundation, a local charitable foundation, supports many art initiatives in Minnesota and convened a panel of critics to discuss the issue of art criticism.
