Art, or Not...
When I see kinds of art that I am unfamiliar with, I really take the time to try and understand it. I owe this attitude to a college professor who, in music and art classes that he taught, told us of brilliant masterworks that were poorly received and disparaged when first performed or seen. So I really do try to understand new things. But this piece, called "The Cavern," although interesting to see, really didn't move me, sad to say. It was on display at a nearby art museum, along with paintings by the same artist as well. The paintings didn't work for me either. There was another exhibit upstairs of paintings by graffiti artists. I am famous for spending 5 or 6 hours in a new museum that I haven't seen before. But this day, I was done with all the exhibits in less than an hour. I should consider that a personal failing on my part.
