This three part account concerning Art is way over due, and seeing the apparent deterioration of our family values, I felt that it was time I had my say about the Art that is created today. You have just viewed some of the work that passes as ‘Art’ and is exhibited for all to see. Because I have been involved in the arts for over 25 years, I can tell you that the Liberals control the art field, and it is the work of the Liberals that will be selected and exhibited. I have travelled to different parts of the US and Mexico (when it was safe) to attend art exhibits of all kinds. Among my favorite places to go are the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC and A Gallery for Fine Photography in New Orleans. And of course my favorite medium is photography. The last photography exhibit I attended was at the MoMA in New York City which included numerous sexual images; making the show most disappointing and not at all memorable.

Why conservatives distance themselves from the Arts is a mystery. Could it be the conservatives no longer feel ‘comfortable’ among so many Liberals? Or is it possible that conservatives ‘hate’ art as so many Liberals profess? Maybe conservatives feel it is below them to ‘view’ Liberal art? For sure the conservatives in general are not buying art or contributing towards a gallery or museum as Liberals do. Where does this leave the conservative artist with his work? When I speak to conservatives about art they all nod their head and agree with one another that they have ‘art’ in their homes. But most appear clueless about the importance of art and how artists can use their creations to promote their ideas and their views. For the most part, they are clueless as to the artist and do not recognize if the artist has an agenda that he is peddling. Art is not about the costly frame that will embrace the art and should never be something you coordinate to ‘match’ with furniture or the color scheme of your walls. I have even found that family portraits are being retired from special places in the home to boxes under the bed because the Liberal magazines consider photographs of family blasé. Why?

ART is defined as a product of deliberately arranged items, often with symbolic significance, in a way that influences and affects one or more of the senses. Another definition of ART explains that Art is created when an artist creates a beautiful object, or produces a stimulating experience that is considered by his audience to have artistic merit. These definitions are from the online Merriam-Webster and Wikipedia dictionaries. For this CIA Report because there are many forms (sculpture, film, graphics, etc) considered ART, I will refer to ART to mean any creation such as paintings and photography.

The definition is very clear that it is the audience that gives the art piece merit. The definition also refers to the art object as ‘beautiful’ and that it may or may not have any symbolic meaning. Beauty is not always the objective of an art piece. The simplest way to understand ‘beauty’ is by referencing the quote “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. As in anything the more exhibits attended the more inclined you are to ‘see’ and or understand the beauty of certain paintings and photographs. As a general rule, most people experience the enjoyment of ‘looking’ at a painting or photograph but can not directly tell you why they like it over another art piece.

While ‘Art’ has always provoked thought, in recent times many ‘artists’ have taken their ‘Art’ to a new low. In the name of ‘Art’ the human form portrayed by the artist has evolved into what can only be called pornography. Not satisfied with the lines and form of the human body, it seems that the artist is intent on startling the viewers. These ‘artists’ remind me of the pervert who exposes himself for shock value and for self gratification. Even more disturbing is the abundance of artists willing to exhibit Christ or the Virgin Mary in a sacrilegious or outrageous manner. This offense against Christianity is a profound statement to the moral fiber of our nation.

Curators select the art pieces, paintings or photographs that are displayed at galleries and museums. In turn these paintings or photographs will influence viewers either negatively or positively. It seems that in most cases the Liberal curators control the ‘show’. While the Mona Lisa and other famous or historic paintings and photographs are already part of museum collections, the established or the aspiring artists of our time are vying for recognition. In many instances, it has been difficult for the conservative artist to coexist with the liberal artist. Curators have a penchant for photographs and art that depict the most liberal side of humanity. Consequently that is why controversial art work is displayed more often than not. The conservative artist along with his work is overlooked leaving him to struggle on his own to acquire his own uniqueness. Liberals love the fact that the conservatives have abandoned their own artists.

Who controls the art world? The Liberals do. The conservatives have allowed it to happen. The Liberals and the Arts have become a twosome. The Liberal curators choose the theme of the exhibit then select the Liberal ‘art’ created by the Liberal artist. These Liberal art pieces will be installed in a Liberal gallery or Liberal Museum. Then the Liberal art supporters and buyers will attend the opening of the Liberal Art Show to enjoy and buy the Liberal art pieces. The liberals know how essential it is to be able to control this field to promote their Liberal agenda. They understand that through visual communication viewers are able to digest a message quickly. Drawings have been used as a means to communicate throughout history. The Egyptians used hieroglyphics to communicate and the Indians used pictographs. Wall drawings were found in the Christian catacombs and the Catholic Church used all forms of art in teaching and promoting the Catholic faith.

CHAPER 136 – THE MASS MEDIA: SOFT CORE PORN PEDDLERS

Sorrano and His 'Piss Christ.'

Andres Sorrano, a little-known "artist," simply filled a glass vat with his own urine and then dumped a photograph of a Crucifix in it. He imaginatively entitled this masterpiece "Piss Christ." For this magnificent and imaginative effort, he received a $15,000 award from the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA). Urine tax dollars at work.
