And boy are they serious about their "art" too!
Our son was pointing at a box of cereal hanging on the wall. He was staring at it in awe thinking that surely it was a joke. This couldn't really be the exhibit; could it?
The curator saw our son in the midst of his crime...of pointing and staring at art in an art museum...and immediately yelled at him, "Don't point too close to that!!!"
Our son naturally looked at him dismayed. I did too. Had this man really just said what I think he said? Without thinking, I said, "What?!" asking for the lunacy to be repeated...and it was.
As my whole family then realized what had been said, we all promptly responded (after my laughter) by raising our hands and pointing at whatever "art" happened to be in front of us.
Poor guy. I don't think he knew what to do with the likes of us. From the pointing too closely to my 14yr old daring to ask if the bean bag chair was for sitting on. (It wasn't. A coat of silver paint had apparently rendered it "art" as well.)
What really made this museum a tragedy, though, is that the real art was hidden in dark corners and in stairwells. The art & artists in those areas should have been THE featured exhibits.
You know, unless you consider blank canvas stretched over a pallet to be art. If so, then my 11yr old has some FANTASTIC pieces he'd like to sell you. For that matter, I've got a ream of paper you might like to see. You can...for only $21. I can even hire someone to tell YOUR family not to point too closely at the box of Cheerios on top of my fridge.
