Steve Martin and Stephen Colbert Talk About Art

Stephen Colbert and Steve Martin
watch Shepard Fairey in action.

Art collector, author and comedian Steve Martin appeared as a guest for an entire episode of Stephen  Colbert's, The Colbert Report. Colbert's other guests on the show include artists Frank Stella, Shepard Fairey and Andres Serrano in an entertaining banter that unabashedly asks the question, What makes art, art?

Steve Martin has a new novel, An Object of Beauty that according to the New York Times book review is a "New York tale of Art, Money and Ambition" and is based on Martin's first hand experience as a collector in the high stakes world of art.
