Yesterday I heard an ad on the radio for an art exhibit called, I think, "Double Take," that said it juxtaposed paintings by "Impressionist masters like Monet with those of contemporary artists like Picasso." WTF? Contemporary with my GRANDMOTHER. Jeez - it's always annoyed me how in popular culture art seems to have fallen off a cliff and never been heard of again around the time of, say, mid-career Warhol. People still bring up Campbell's soup cans like they think it's edgy. JEEZZZZZ.
