And I agree with you, Mark, that some art hanging in galleries is rubbish. I could never see anything artistic in Picasso's work, yet some people place a high value on it. Likewise, putting a crucifix in a jar of urine, insulting God, and calling it "art" is insane. Yet that piece of junk was displayed in a gallery, here, and paid for with our tax money.
I think that there are two different fallacies in this one. But I'm also certain that we will never agree over what constitutes art. I bow out, disappointed.
