Don't have a link but a "Performance Artist" took it off the wall and ate it.

That was wrong of them to do.

Then again...

Nope! Wrong!

....... :lol:

I disagree. It was the first piece of "performance art" I actually appreciated, applauded, and enjoyed! First time I know of when a performance artist's message was: The Emperor Has No Clothes! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
Gosh! How will they ever replace that rare piece of art?

Next time, maybe use TWO pieces of duct tape to prevent theft?

Bravo!!! I’d forgotten that part of the book.
"It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of non-violence to cover impotence. There is hope for a violent man to become non-violent. There is no such hope for the impotent." -Gandhi

Wasn't Pollack unknowning supported by the CIA because America had a "modern art gap" with the godless commies?
Almost -- it was to portray the Soviets as rigid and unfree: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/worl ... 78808.html
Why did the CIA support them? Because in the propaganda war with the Soviet Union, this new artistic movement could be held up as proof of the creativity, the intellectual freedom, and the cultural power of the US. Russian art, strapped into the communist ideological straitjacket, could not compete.
