Re: “ART: Otterness sculpture complete; MAG sculpture park proceeds

I can imagine the docents now: "And now children, if you'll look here, these sculptures of dogs are done by Tom Otterness. Both New York City and San Francisco rejected his works. We are very fortunate to have his art here." "Why were they rejected?" "Well, when he was young, he shot a dog to death with a gun and filmed it and called it art." "That's gross! How young was he?" says a 10 year old. "He was 25 years old." "That's not young!" Kids start crying. "Why'd he do it?" "He was protesting the violence of war." "He shot and killed a dog to protest violence and war?" "Yes, that's right. Now over here we have another sculpture by..." "So, senseless violence and killing is okay?" "No, senseless violence and killing is not okay. But this act of killing a dog wasn't senseless. It was done for art." "I've decided I don't like art, then." "Shut up, kid. You're taking this too seriously. You don't understand art." "You don't understand dogs, or kids," "Security!" "Why don't you just shoot us, you know, for art's sake."
