I think you are being kind in using the word "unassuming" for the screen grab pictures of background birds. I was intrigued by the portraits of actresses, especially those whose careers are long past, yet willing to appear and show that their grace can still be apparent.
We viewed this exhibit and found it enlightening. It was certainly a form of propaganda directed at Depression-era Rochesterians, but the composition and development was well done. Our only complaint was the grouping of murals now at Charlotte High School; the sketches showing original concepts were set at eye level, but reproductions of the completed murals were set above, and possibly even smaller than the sketches, making them hard to view. We were pleased to note that a previous article by Ms. Rafferty was referenced in the published book of the show.
Last year's event was fun for us viewers, trying to find all the art (there is still some I haven't found) and watching the artists' different techniques. Offering sympathy for the hot weather occurring last year was universal. If there's a theme, it may be more accessible, but I still expect some mind-stretching work.
A shame to see this happen. It was a quality effort.
I walked down part of the El Camino Trail from Irondequoit this morning. My intention was to see the art, which I did. But what really made me feel good were the three different people also wandering around who engaged me, happy to see the artists in their neighborhood.
I don't feel qualified to judge the work. I'll have to experience it to see if I enjoy it or not. But it's apparent the other commenters are not qualified to judge it either, since they are letting their moral outrage rule their thoughts. If they feel morally superior to Mr. Otterness then they should be able to use that superiority to forgive him. He has asked forgiveness, now the ball is in their court.
