How long does it take for art to become history?

Paul from Seattle wants to know:

How long does it take for art to become history? Do you have to wait for the paint to dry?

Dear Paul,

You can mix a speed drying medium into your paint. This will expedite the process of your paintings entering the canons of art history. Tricking an art historian into writing about your work in a scholarly journal will help too. Best of luck.
