Abbott H. Thayer ‘Waterlilies’ 1884

It’s funny, the only reason this is on tumblr is because of me, and then I left, and now that I’m back it has over 2,000 notes and I don’t get the credit…but whatever. As long as everyone knows it’s Thayer, and it’s amazing, I really don’t care.

Umm because no one else has access to Flickr right? I don’t get why people need tumblr credit for art they didn’t create

After interviewing for a job with the Academy of Art and finding out at the end of the interview that the pay is $13.50/hr, I wrote a nice thank you note: “Thanks for speaking with me today. After looking over my expenses, $13.50 will not be enough for me to live on. The average rent for a one bedroom in San Francisco is $2,897, and $13.50 an hour would only amount to $2,160 per month. Only if you increase the rate to at least the living wage, or offer housing, this will not work for me.” 
Her reply: “At this time, the pay rate for the role is $13.50.” 

My reply: “I suggest your institution reconsider its priorities. As one of the largest landowners in SF with a real estate portfolio worth at least $320 million, and annual revenues more than $247 million, you would think you could spare enough to pay full time labor enough to afford to live in one of the Academy’s overly priced buildings. Just sayin.”
Greed on both sides of the equation, the landlords and the employers, makes for a citizenry forced to depend on loans and credit which, surprise, just funnels more money into the pockets of the wealthy.


Ah the Academy… And people ask me why I don’t want to teach there…
