Art or not?

If you ever wonder why certain paintings or sculptures are considered art, be aware the context the piece is viewed in puts a lot of weight on whether it is consider art. Just because a museum has a show of aluminum lawn chairs from WalMart in an impressive white room with wood floor and track lighting doesn't make them art. Much of what museums display is nothing more than art polution.

I totally agree that some art is art polution. If I cannot tell which is the top or bottom, I question if it is art. However, I have to point out that "weather" should be whether. Sorry
