Will The Left See This As Art?


Drudge Report has a link to a Yahoo News story about a sculpture by Chinese artist Liu Bolin titled "Burning Man Obama," with this picture of the sculpture as it was tested at a workshop in Beijing today.

The article states "The sculpture represents U.S. President Barack Obama's impact on the world."

I checked Huffington Post, Daily Kos, and Think Progress, as I know those are three of the biggest leftist websites and found no articles as of yet. I also did a Google search but it looks like right now only right-leaning sites have picked up on this story.

I wonder what they will say, if anything?

I will update if I find anything interesting out there...

Well, it is either this, or the Chia-pet Obama. ;-)

Opus, you're so right!

They now have been given choices...

I saw this on Drudge today too, and I thought it was way cool....finally a pic of the poser I can look at without puking!

My reaction is - if you call it art - liberals will accept anything.

Soloman said...

Bunni - considering the left reveled in the idea of a movie depicting the assassination of George W. Bush... damned right this is art!

Soloman said...

Janie Lynn.. that's the whole thing. They only accept as are whatever fits their ideology.

I'll bet they hate it.

if you can get a grant from the national endowment for the arts to do jesus or mary (i forget which) in human excrement and make movies about assassinating GWB, why wouldn't this be art? it's fantastic. very creative.

j summ -

It was only Jesus... and it was just urine.

Not like The Obamessiah being burned.

Heaven forbid.
