THE FUTURE OF THE ARTS
The Future holds many dramatic events, from the extinction of 20% of all creatures of earth , the coming collapse of all oceanic fisheries, to the advent of 9 Billion humans beings on earth.

What about the general population attitude towards the arts in turbulent times? One wonders if the arts will fall upon a similar fate shown in Children of Men (Alfonso Cuaron ). How will the Arts be presented in times ahead? What will happen to the thousands of art museums that dot the world?How will art be presented to possibly traumatized masses? Will art be safe? What is the future of the Art Museum?
