art snob

ok. I admit it. I'm an art snob. There's A LOT of art I don't like. Not to say that I don't think all art has it's purpose/ audience/ or value... but there is very few art and/or artists that I can say "I LOVE that."

On the other hand, when I do see a piece I like...it takes my breath away.

Today I head down to NYC for business and tomorrow there will be an excursion to the MoMA. I'm really looking forward to it since I've heard it's amazing.

Dear Art Snob, I'm jealous. I LOVE the MOMA. My favorite painting in there is Picasso's "Girl Before a Mirror". I have to go see it every time I'm in NYC. The first time I ever got in front of it I actually had tears pool up in my eyes.

I know what you mean about liking some artwork and disliking others. Art is VERY subjective. Sometimes we "get" it and sometimes we don't. -Don
