Catherine Rampell makes compelling discovery when she factored in the available grant/scholorship aid into a list of the most expensive colleges. Half of the programs are art schools. Two more are for music. The point here is not that art school is so expensive but that there is little in the way of alternative resources to mitigate the cost. Pair that chart with the Pew Trust’s exploration of artist and curator’s economic backgrounds and we have an interesting portrait of downward mobility despite the art market’s rise.
