Something to think about...

While I'm off petting sheep today at the New York Sheep & Wool thingy.

Dennis Dutton, a professor of philosophy of art in New Zealand has written a lovely op-ed in the New York Times about whether or not conceptual art is dead. (click his name for the link to the article)

In it, he talks about how much people love beautifully crafted items, and suggests that maybe the art world is returning to a (gasp) craft-based mode of high art.

Now isn't that interesting (she writes on her knitting blog)?

Discuss amongst yaselves... (with a Linda Richmond emphasis)
