Re: Oldenburg Sues/Everybody Sues/ Sculpture Sits

To ME, the Statue of Liberty, Rushmore, the mountain-sized Crazy Horse, the Eiffel Tower and the pyramids, and the ninth wonder of the world - the Pulaski Skyway - are all NOT Art.
So if the gigantic metal woman that holds so much symbolic meaning for hundreds of millions of people, possibly more than any other sculpture, that has been seen by more people than any other statue in the world, were smaller and situated in a white room, might it then be art? If the gigantic stone monuments that.... get my drift? Yeah I know you emphasized "to ME", but I suspect a momentary lapse in your normally generous definition of art has occurred. Did you get up too early and post before your jug of coffee?
