    Modern art is an attack upon civilization in my view.

    Reminds me of when a woman won the Laguna Arts festival painting contest only to then say her 2 year old daughter did it, ah ah on you.

    Or the sidewalk statues in Germany. Garbage crews thought they were part of the trash pick up and took them all to the landfill.

    An attack on civilization? I have seen plenty of art that I think is garbage, but an attack on civilization?

    A civilizations art is a window into its soul.
    The crap being passed off as art the last 5 decades is a corruption of our society.

    It is not even close to the majority of art produced. Yes, there are some fringe elements. But that does not really do much to society.

    The fact modern "art" even exists, let alone how it is pushed into public view by the left is an assault upon society.

    Some local "art" paid for by John Q. Public:

    $200K:

    $339K:

    The funny thing with "The Bars" is due to a California law they had to pay the "artist" a $123,000 bribe to allow them to finally remove them.

    Yep. There is a lot of weird art out there. But the effect it has on the majority is minimal to nonexistent.

    /---/ I paint and study classical art like the Old Dutch Masters and Hudson River art. There has always been modern art. What was modern in 1700 is now classical. what is considered garbage now may be classical in 400 years.
