Korbi is 14 now
he has been walking past the MoMA Lemon gallery window from his parents at one end of the gallery street to his grandparents at the other end for about 6 years now. How sweet, yet sweeter that he has been inspired by what he's been seeing in the windows of MoMA lemon, the endless succession of cow paintings by Pete Kilkenny, the endless ideas for printing & painting projects & god knows what else.
Well now he wants to exhibit his own work in the windows of the MoMA Lemon Gallery in Burghausen. We immediately said yes. We recognize Korbi's potential. Of course we do. Children are naturally gifted. Each & every one of them. They only need to be exposed to their own creativity.
We have gone so far as to make him our Ambassador. He can lead the way for a brighter future. At MoMA Lemon we know art is more powerful than money. And as the narrator in, "The Little Prince", believes, adults are obsessed with the wrong things, money, ambition, facts & figures, as we believe also that grown ups, due to their preoccupation with money & false ideas of security, have somehow lost their sense of being, their true natural sense of childish joy.
By the way people, Anna Ford, the creator of MoMA Lemon, mother of 3 lovely creative daughters and life partner of one of my best friends ever Pat baldwin & myself, would like to quote another slightly older Ambassador who also believes exactly the same as the narrator of The Little Prince & we do,
"I do believe art is more powerful than money, though. I still believe that. And if I ever find out money's more important, I'll knock it on the head"
