|My son said this looks like the white boards at school|
AFTER they've been cleaned!
And finally, some things that are indisputedly famous art.
|Experts call Van Gogh's The Starry Night a work of art -- I agree.|
But my son, a young man fearfully and wonderfully made by our Creator,
is even more so.
I don't have to understand an artist's motivation in order to grasp the artwork, but I do try to apply the standard of Philippians 4:8 -- and if the work doesn't in some way glorify God, I have a hard time calling it art. Next time I go to MOMA, I'll start at the top floor (where the Picasso and Van Gogh paintings are) and work my way down.
Oops, last one. This is my graduate, who will be studying Geospatial Imaging in college this fall. In other words, she is a map geek. Maps can definitely be art!
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
