How to sell a $100,000,000 painting for $10,000

I lived and worked on low budget movies in downtown New York City in the early 1980s when the arts were going through big changes.

I worked with Chris Stein and Debbie Harry of the rock group Blondy on a movie called “Downtown 81,” It was mostly a documentary about the downtown underground music scene which sprouted from the angry, near-bankrupt NYC where car window-washing bums ruled the dirty streets, and the burned out and abandoned South Bronx was a popular spot for German tourists.
