Picasso once said "What I find annoying about so-called modern art is that everyone is trying to give you the gift of their personality. Who needs it?"

Christ...and people wonder why the Government is reluctant to use tax dollars to fund the "arts". What utter nonsense; a bunch of juvenile PT Barnums seeking funding for their "art".

Really? Wow. Contemporary art in NYC is still stuck in the 1970s. If I want to look at underwear as art, I can go into my bedroom and save myself the $20 for the Whitney.
