Green Dresses With Breasts

Every time I pass the library lobby, I see a display of student art. This semester, it’s clothing designed to reflect contemporary issues. Frankly, I find the art very bad.

Sure, just call me an art heathen; I don’t consider good art to be merely conceptual. Perhaps other people prefer bluntness in their art, an in-your-face shout, an obvious depiction of meaning without the artist really reasoning anything through. But I would compare it to the op-ed columns of student newspapers (or any op-ed columns, come to think of it) where everything is bluster, black and white. No complexity.
