Re: Public displaying of Nude Art

Hi Anne, OOH, that could be a tough question and open up a can of worms and it should probably be a thread of it's own.
That said,
Is any work done by an artist a piece of art??
My answer is YES, as long as it's INTENT is to be a work of art.
It doesn't matter whether it's fit for children to see, it doesn't matter if we like it or not, and it may very well be an absolutely God awful piece of junk in everybody's mind BUT, if the artists intent is that it is a work of art, then it's a work of art!
We may judge it's quality, it's lack of what WE consider art to be, but we can't judge whether or not it's a piece of art, that's a given.
Have a nice day,
