Art Should Transcend the Almighty Dollar

August 09, 2000

Having read your paper for over a dozen years, I feel compelled to write for the first time regarding the piece on Thomas Kinkade ("Rich Man, Poor Man," July 26). To say that I am disappointed in your decision to do a profile of him would be an understatement. By making such an enormous sum of money by merchandising every ounce of kitsch that he pumps out, Kinkade may appear to be worthy of an article, [but] you are tacitly endorsing what he represents.
