An open letter to Damien Hirst

An open letter to Damien Hirst

How best to be remembered

Dear Mr. Hirst,
_________________________________________________________________
It is indeed a pleasure to know that you are one of those artists
_________________________________________________________________
who can say that you cannot recall whether one of your works cost
_________________________________________________________________
ten or fifteen million pounds. With this in mind, I would like
_________________________________________________________________
to make a suggestion to you. Have you thought of putting some
_________________________________________________________________
of your money that may possibly be lying around, not really doing
_________________________________________________________________
anything and put it towards an Art prize? You could consider an
_________________________________________________________________
international one, where there are ten winners, sort of like the _________________________________________________________________
Hugo Boss Prize. I believe that such a thing would be deeply
_________________________________________________________________
appreciated by the world and would even be considered quite _________________________________________________________________
humanitarian.

Regards, Adele
