Profit for non-profit: so where and to whom does the money actually goes to?

It’s kind of funny to read about the incomes of some of the most prominent persons at the international art scene, when museums and art institutions constantly complain about not having enough money. Bloomberg Businessweek and ArtFCity gives you a complete list of the income level for selected persons. Deserved or over the top?

  • Jeffrey Deitch, director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, $916,000.
  • Thomas Campbell, director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, $1.1 million. The museum also provides him with free and tax-free housing in a $4 million co-op.
  • James Cuno, president and chief executive of the J. Paul Getty Trust,  $1.1 million.
