Artist’s, Do You Like Sun?

So, I think that by now, I’m not to confident in the citys future ability to hold the position as the the world’s cultural capital or even a decent place for creative people to exist in. Like almost everyone, I know– I am keeping my options open.

The federal reserves latest BIG ASS BURSTING BUBBLE seems to be in housing and one of it’s epicenters is starting to look interesting. There certainly seems to be nice oversuply of fancy new construction in Miami, which just happens to be the location of the world’s largest art fair orgy. Could we end up with prices getting down to artist levels? Chances are that they will at least attract more dealers.

This is kind of an open thread– anyone think this makes sense?

    John – Blaine here – Miami Captain now visiting and posting in NYC. There are 70,000 brand new apartments with no buyers in Miami . You can live in a beautiful sun filled luxury highrise 40 stories up overlooking the Bay or Ocean for less than you would pay for a dank dirty sub basement studio in Ft.Greene.See my MOday post on Miami Metblogs. There is already a good sized Art Community, as I’m sure you know. Move on down!

    Certainly am interested. I am really, really broke now but I regret very deeply never getting my gallery here into some kind of art fair.

    One big deterent for me about my perception of the rest of America is that I would have to have a car and drive everywhere.

    I will tell you one thing. If one, put a dense, functional NY type city in the "Sun Belt", there would be wago trains and people walking to it as we speak.
