Then again, maybe this is a knife

Lileks mentions the new Denver Art Museum building today. I got the impression he didn’t care much for it. I also got the impression he doesn’t care for much contemporary art.

That’s fine; neither do I. I prefer representative art that looks as though the artist has skills beyond knowing which end of the brush to hold.

As for the new building, to me, it makes the statement, “Look at me – I’m making a statement here!” Unless it’s “Who cares about efficiency, or having enough room to add exhibit displays in future” or “Can I make people nervous when they go into the pointy end?” I’m not certain I know what it is.
