Wondering: That Ain’t Art in this Beholder’s Eye

Wondering: Oh good grief, I'm no artist and I could make that thing from trash refuse. And what would the taxpayers be shelling out for that? P.T. Barnum was right. This reminds me of the Emperors New Clothes. Not art, a joke. But nobody wants to say that for fear of being considered an artistic philistine.

DFO: Wondering's commenting about one of the five finalist pieces being considered for the interior art of the new Coeur d'Alene Library. HBO published it yesterday here. Another finalist, "Enchanted Readers" by Kendra Fleischman, is shown above.
