Drawn To The Art

| Related | July 18, 2013

(I’m walking with my godson at the seaside, where some abstract sculptures are exhibited.)

Godson: “Auntie, is that art or garbage?”

Me: “I don’t know honey. Why don’t you take a look? If it has got a title, it is art. If it hasn’t, then it is junk.”

Godson: “So, if I collect junk at random at grandpa’s shed and give it a title it becomes art?

Me: “I guess so…”

(Sure enough, some of the sculptures have lost their label. I have a difficult time explaining that all that artistically arranged driftwood is considered art.)
