I’m going to plow right in and embarrass myself by saying that I agree with Andy Rooney’s rant today.
Ok, stop laughing – at least until you hear what he was on about.
He was talking about what passes for art in our cities. The monstrosities plopped right into our downtown areas, at great cost, that some refer to as art. He proceeded to show us a few examples. The huge painted ceramic animals took the cake. And I thought PA was the only one afflicted by this menace.
Don’t get me wrong; I know I’m a bit… different. I know a trip to the art museum is only going to frustrate me and make my companion(s) suicidal. I don’t like what most people refer to as art. And I certainly don’t think residents of a city should fork over one red cent for something like this, silly or not.
As a resident of PA, I have seen a paper clip the size of a small building go up as art.
The ultimate example would be a statue, ironically outside the art museum, of Rocky.
Need I say more?
