But is it art?

Kevin Nguyen, 16, and TJ Khayatan, 17, placed a pair of eyeglasses on the floor of an exhibit room at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, then walked away. It wasn’t long before the specs found an audience, as passersby mistook the ordinary eyeglasses for a piece of modern art. Khayatan tweeted the news of his accidental masterpiece (see below) and before long, the story went viral.

 In truth? I've seen stupider things passing as "modern art" before that were dead serious. At least this guy didn't stick a $50,000 price tag on it!

I think a lot of modem "art" is just an inside joke to see who can get away with displaying the most rediculous piece. There's probably a big underground event each year for the winner.

Oh! I didn't notice it was two "youths" :-) Thanks to FancyLad for fixing up the post, but the image (picture) at the top isn't working. >>> I really have seen dumber things passed off as "modern art" eh? But not all modern art is bad, some is just excellent. Wanda Koop of Canada particularly this one Airplane on the Wall Apparently it's 12 feet wide and 8 feet tall :-)
