PPAC #8: August 6, 2021

This thing (for lack of a better word) was apparently part of a civic art project. There are a few of them around Annapolis. People were given blank birds to do whatever they wished to do with them. There was a similar event in Los Angeles around the turn of this past Century. Blank, faceless metal angles were distributed among “recognized” artists. Almost without exception, they were hideous to the point of hilarity? Kitsch? Just plain ugly? You decide. How do you think this compares with the obvious object of its parody?

  1. Russell, I’d say it’s definitely art, and it’s a comedy, too. Funny that the figure is recognizable as odd as it is, but recognition is immediate. I love it. Thanks for sharing this week.
