This week, a magnificent piece of “art” was sold for big money. Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan put his time-taking masterpiece (a banana taped to a wall) for sale at Art Basel, Miami. This work was sold for $120k! You read that right (I didn’t accidentally add an extra zero). Cattelan claimed the banana was a symbol of “global trade.” If that rip-off seemed absurd already, another person bought a second edition of the art for the same price. A third was now sold for a steeper price of $150k. The people who bought these had money to burn …or were going bananas!
