Art Value

Have you heard the one about free market traders using the dollar as a measure of value. They say everything has a price in dollars and cents. 
Art is no exception.

I wonder whether we could find a measure for art not expressed in terms of dollars alone. I know this is not a new idea.

Art is amazing. A creative phenomenon that holds the power to unite dissimilar objects and people. 

To turn ideas around, consider viewpoints and to move you through space. 
Can you put a price on time travel?

Art as creative enterprise has the power and strengthen individuals and communities. So is the value of art in the making or the viewing?
 I think the answer is both.

So how can we measure the value of art?
This is well documented territory.

It should be easy.
