Top 5 Things I Learned Today About Art.


I went to The Walker Art Center today with a buddy Peter and his sister.

Here are the top 5 things I learned:

5. If you paint a child sitting on a chair, title it: “A Child Sitting On A Chair.” (As to avoid confusion.)

4. When you sign your piece of art, make it look like a 2 year old did it, it looks more artsy.

3. There are people who buy re-usable grocery bags for $7o because they think it is “art.”

2. A man making a video of himself walking in a square 100 times in 100 different ways is art.

1. Art doesn’t have to be good, just really, really wierd.

  1. Funny. I laughed. Sounds like you need a trip to the MIA.
    Ok. Im not trying to push Modern Art on you. I just want to say, that Modern Art is a lot about the history, the movements of the time, and mostly about the process of the art itself. You have to read up on it, in order to appreciate it.

    Start with Charles Ray “Unpainted Sculpture”- You seemed to enjoy that one. Ha.

    i once saw a piece of art at the toledo art museum…
    it was a half circle of canvas painted green.
    wanna take a stab at what it was titled?
    yup, you guessed it.
    half circle painted green.

    now i consider myself artsy, but i still don’t get certain things about the world of art. although i can sympathize with the titling, because i jsut suck at coming up with them. maybe neing creative with your hands makes you unable to come up with good titles?
    anywho, i think the only museum i’ve been to where i didn’t feel incredulous about anything was the louvre.
    then again i only saw the old parts…
