The Arts Edition

Monday, March 24, 2003
1. Poetry or prose? Poetry
2. Funky modern art or the older, "classic" variety? Classic
3. Sculptures or paintings? Paintings
4. Theatre: exuberant musical or serious drama? Hmmm...this one is hard, I like them both.
5. Ballet or modern dance? Balley
6. Movies: major studio or indie? Again...both can be treasures, but I frequent major studio more.
7. Authors: Shakespeare or Dr. Seuss? Dr. Seuss...but I do like some of Will's work, too!
8. TV: PBS or A&E? A&E
9. Music: Beethoven or Beatles? Beatles...
10. Thought-provoking question of the week: You are a contributing member of your favorite art museum, and visit on a regular basis. They announce a new, temporary special exhibit by an artist surrounded by controversy...this person's work and/or political views offend you. Do you stop supporting the museum, or just stay away during the time the exhibit is there?
I wouldn't stop supporting the museum...I can't be arrogant enough to believe that they should ONLY have exhibits that I admire. I think I would just have to stay away during that time, but I might protest a bit to the museum about why I feel this artist isn't worthy of being exhibited.
