Just ran across a story about a teacher who got thrown off a Royal Caribbean cruise ship for distributing a flier that questioned the value of art being auctioned on board.
This happened more than a week ago, which will show you how alert I’ve been lately. (I blame the rain; I’m always mowing.) The flier is posted on the Fine Art Registry site, which has been in a long and bitter dispute with the auction company, Park West Galleries.
This is just the latest in a controversy that leaves me wondering whether the cruise lines are making enough money on this to make it worth the damage to their reputations.
