Real Live Preacher Visits Chicago… Again

Real Live Preacher gives you a glimpse of his whirlwind tour of Chicago:

Red Board Leaning Against The Wall by Real Live PreacherHe visited the Art Institute of Chicago and saw this exhibit. I love what he had to say:

I know this probably means I’m not very sophisticated, but I’m always a little amused by some of the modern art. This piece had no title that I could see. I might suggest “Red Board Leaning Against The Wall.” Or maybe someone was installing doors and left one out by mistake.

So much of art seems like pretension to me. This red board is a perfect example. Is it art? Is it abandoned building material? We don’t know.

It reminds me of this video:

“Waiting for the Stranger to Sit” makes me skeptical of art, but I LOVE art museums nonetheless.

Looks like you had fun, RLP! I am wishing I could visit Chicago right now!
