A Fool and Her Money

Modern art degenerated into psychotic fingerpaintings generations ago. How can moonbats continue to push the envelope, which must be done constantly so they can admire themselves for their hipster transgressiveness? Here’s an idea that also cuts down on the cost of art supplies:

Being an art lover can turn into an expensive endeavor, but to lay down some cold hard cash on works that don’t even exist is pushing the bounds of art appreciation to its breaking point. New media aficionado Aimee Davison doesn’t quite share that same viewpoint and she used her bank account to show it, spending $10,000 on a piece of non-existent artwork from the Museum of Non-Visible Art (MONA).

The MONA project is the work of artist duo Brainard and Delia Carey, along with actor James Franco. You might remember the intrepid trio launching a Kickstarter fundraising effort for the mythical museum last month. The most expensive item available for purchase from MONA was a $10,000 work titled Fresh Air, which is now the property of Ms. Davison.

For her 10 grand, Davison gets “a simple display card which explains the idea behind the art, and nothing more.” At least it should be easier to look at than some of the childish crap hanging at MoMA.

    Holy crap ! Sure that’s not a view inside a liberal’s mind?

  • Dave H.

    Not a bad scam. P. T. Barnum would be proud. I can use that money a lot more than some rich moonbat with a big inheritance.

  • Comrade Terry

    Some people have more dollars than sense.

    Right Dave, old P.T. Barnum knew exactly what he was talking about when he said, “there’s one born every minute.” He was of course, refering to suckers. If not for them, there would be no left-wing.

    Here’s another LIBERAL fool and her money parted:

    LAKE CITY, Fla. — The Florida woman who paid around $100,000 in legal fees for convicted killer Joran van der Sloot — claiming to be the Dutchman’s “guardian angel” — resigned from the case.

    If it’s displayed inside that museum, I wonder how “fresh” the air can be?! Lots of hot air there!
    Speaking of bad art, I read in a Brazilian blog that I follow, about art made by Hitler, and low and behold, the thing was sold!!

    A Slovak online auction has just proved that art by the world’s most vicious dictator is still considered valuable by some people. On Sunday Hitler’s painting ‘Maritime Nocturno’ fetched €32,000 at Darte auction house.

    The picture entitled ‘Maritime Nocturno’ was sold to an anonymous buyer.

    The 1913 work was estimated at €25,000 with a starting price of €10,000. It was put on sale by the family of a Slovak artist who had apparently met Hitler in Vienna, where the future Fuhrer was pursuing his ambition to become a professional artist. The 60x48cm picture depicts a glittering sea under a full moon.

    “I look at him as an artist. In 1913, when Hitler painted this picture, he didn’t know what would become of him in the decades to come,” Darte owner Jaroslav Krajnak told Agence France Presse.

    In 2011 the auction house sold another Hitler painting from the same collection for €10,200.

    Hitler was interested in art from early childhood. As a young man he even painted for a living. In the late 1900s he attempted to enter the Vienna Fine Arts Academy but failed

    That is THE most RACIST artwork I have EVER seen!
    Tsk, tsk… and in The Occupied Bay Area… shameful.

  • StanInTexas

    Once again begging the question…

    How did a fool and their money ever get together in the first place????

  • Kevin R.

    Man, she’s probably had to hire somebody just to fend off all the con-artists trying to sell her more of the same kind of crap. She’s a mark.

    ‘Tis merely a picture of the wardrobe closet of our own Ozymandias-on-the-Potomac featuring the entire array of Emperor’s New Clothes in all their splendor.

    My, don’t they suit him to “T” as well? Every bit as substantive as both he and his vapid policies.

    Is it copywrighted?
    I need some extra cash.

  • Joe

    I’m working on an invisible Mona Lisa. When it’s done, I figure it will be priceless. Now where did I put that thing…..

  • Laobag

    Doesn’t the picture need to be soaked in urine or smeared with feces for artistic consideration?

  • Jodie

    Below is a picture of an abstract painting that I made of Obama’s original Hawaiian birth certificate. It’s for sale to the highest bidder:

    Non-visible art also known as … music. And singing.

    “How did a fool and their money ever get together in the first place?”

    Inheritance, Stan. Remember, it’s all about what liberals accuse conservatives of having and doing.

    COMMUNIST GOALS:

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

  • ncartist

    As an artist who spent years perfecting my skill and making a living selling my work in galleries……..I’ve always considered modern art a flim-flam scam……this proves it.
    As one great Russian artist I know said “Modern art is the great hiding place of the unlearned and untalented”

  • beforethestorm

    Maybe it needs fluorescent lighting…ya know…like those day glo unicorns on black velvet we had on our wall as kids.

  • James McEnanly

    Wouldn’t ‘non-visible art’ be music?

  • Max

    A fool and his/her money are soon parted.
