The Vision
There are at least two valid ways to encourage the creation of art. One, which might be called the D'Medici method, is to hand funding to specific artists for specific projects. Those artists, usually chosen through a rigorous selection process designed to weed out failure, create the work as specified, completing the commission. Artist and benefactor for the most part know what they are getting into and what the finished product will look like.
