“The concept of craft is present in many aspects of everyday life, even if it is not actively recognized as such. The importance and impact of independent artists studied by this dissertation is depicted in people’s everyday lives through widespread engagement with art. On her blog, Adora Myers offers this explanation, “Fine art transforms a building into a museum… Folk art enters a place, warms the colors, softens the edges, and plays in the yard. It is the tipping point, the key element transforming a house into a home.”9 While Myers is not an art historian, this quote perfectly highlights the commonly understood relationship between fine and folk art and emphasizes the value of folk art through its
existence in our homes and everyday lives.”

“How do we go about saving them? American blogger Adora Myers suggests there are several steps we can take, either as individuals or as corporate bodies, government agencies, non-governmental organisations, churches and other charities.

First, those who are fit enough need to find a permanent job that provides them with full benefits and can cover their cost of living. This is especially important for those who have young children. Next, is long-term shelter, but they should not be exploited under these circumstances; that is, do not put them to live in substandard conditions like a backyard shed, or abuse them sexually or otherwise for the rent money”

  1. I think that “finding a job” places an unnecessary burden on the worker. There aren’t enough jobs in the US for every able-bodied person who wants to work, and the corporations that run this country want to keep it that way. First, it cuts down on their labor costs, and, second, having a desperate workforce means that workers will accept any job for less than subsistence wages just to be working.
    The economists I follow support a Federal Guaranteed Job Program (FGJP) which would set a floor on how little the workers could be paid, and would hire people to do work that isn’t currently respected in the for-profit economy: have to care for your elderly mother? FGJP would pay you to do that. Have a disabled veteran for a husband? FGJP would pay you to care for him.
