    Link: Is This Sign Directed At Banksy? - Leave it to the Irish to put things like this back into perspective.

    Normally, i don`t complain about reposts, but this is going to start another argument about artists. Lame.

    An artist probably designed the font used to make that sign...

    Agreed completely with the sign. Is art important and valuable? Yes. Is it going to help put food in people`s stomachs? No.

    Some art may be more useful than working in a soup kitchen. Most is not.

    Bitching at artists won`t save the world, either.

    @snoopyBG Its a play on words
    @rubbiten I don`t think anyone mentioned where Banksy is from. Does it matter?

    I believe this is supposed to be ironic. They have a website. Check it out.

    Well... Hitler was an Artist... course they decided he wasn`t good enough to be one... so he became a global domination freak... so if he`d been an artist instead... wouldn`t that have saved the world?

    "so if he`d been an artist instead... wouldn`t that have saved the world?"

    Would the US be the world`s number 1 superpower if not for Hitler, or the Japanese?

    Maybe if he volunteered at a soup kitchen.

    "Hitler was an Artist... course they decided he wasn`t good enough to be one... "

    It wasn`t that, it was the fact he couldn`t get his ass into art school. If he went to art school, history would be so different.

    Yes, it was meant to be ironic - because the Dublin Contemporary is a large-scale visual arts festival.

    And, yes, they misspelled Contemporary on the sign.

    /sigh

    @Simbha I believe it was meant to be spelled that way. Contempt usually means you dislike something, so it is parodying the Dublin Contemporary.

    Sure, giving free food away to people who don`t deserve it is a much better idea.

    This is another reason why I love architecture. I fall into a zone of both practical and artistic and stand in the middle of the debate. Sure an engineer could design a building, but will it look good?
