Trump Art Business Boom

Trump Art Boom

“Political activism can be measured in several ways: by the number of signatories on a petition, demonstrators at a protest or donations to an organization.

Or, in some cases, the sale of art supplies.

The week before the Women’s March on Jan. 21 in cities across the United States, protesters who were making signs helped fuel increased sales of poster boards by 33 percent and foam boards by 42 percent compared with the same week last year, the consumer research group NPD reported recently. Poster and foam board sales from Jan. 15 to 21 totaled $4.1 million.”

— “Art Supply Sales Jumped in January, Thanks to Protest Signs, Report Says,” Christopher Melema, New York Times

“So if you wanna fight the good fight, maybe consider opening an art store.” — Sarah Cascone
