As art declines, will civilization follow?

"I'm not pro-Gates or anti-Gates. I don't really care, one way or the other, since the artists are footing the bill, as opposed to taxpayers. What does concern me is the ridiculous outpouring of praise for this ambitious but somewhat shabby enterprise. The fact is, 'The Gates' doesn't mean anything. And the fact that it doesn't mean anything should mean something to us � it should mean that this work doesn't deserve to be labeled 'great art.' "

I must admit, I thought to myself "what the heck is that about". I have traveled the world and seen great and marvelous things. I have also seen not so great things. This to me is just a bunch of tarps flapping in the wind....
