one woman's view into a world of creativity

You Call that Art?

The argument over what constitutes art has been going on a long time, and I’m not always entirely sure where I stand on the matter.  Personally I tend to prefer realism and the intense talent it takes to evoke real-to-life images, but that’s a personal preference still developing with exposure to the art world.  Lots of people look at abstract images and say “My six year old could do that!” and dismiss it as rubbish.  But just because it doesn’t look realistic doesn’t make it not art!  Anyways, that’s an argument for another time when I can devote some critical thought to the matter.  For now – the point of this post – was to share an Andy Rooney clip about public art that’s so honest it is pretty hilarious.
