Art in Belize is a short documentary about three galleries who sell art in three very unique ways. The first one, "Belizean Arts Gallery", is quite traditional, but the second, "The Gallery", sells art in a most unusual way, and the third "Cooper's Art Gallery", treats art in a distinctive fashion.
