All artists should be able to live rent-free. We all should just be allowed to live and congregate and create. That would be an ideal world. unfortunately we all live in the real world where rent is a part of the program. However for one artist, Sean Capone, from the DUMBO Arts Fest, he will have this rent-free life we all opine for. At least for a year.
According to Brooklyn Eagle (1) the winner of the festival was awarded the prize from festival sponsor Two Trees management and Dalzell Productions. Capone also was awarded $1,000 in cash.$1,000. A rough weekend in Williamsburg. Or Top Ramen for Capone and his 3 closest friends, three meals a day for a year.
Hopefully Capone will enjoy his rent-free and hopefully he does not eat Top Ramen three meals a day for the year he has rent free living. The body begins rejecting too much Top Ramen. And the whole sodium intake thing.
