Sometimes I save news articles to talk about on my blog, but never get around to posting about them.
Here's one about how the Obama administration is looking to put some contemporary art in the White House.
Mostly, it seems like posturing to me, to appear that you're breaking with the past, like you're trying to appear more in touch with contemporary society, and things that reflect contemporary society.
But I love contemporary art, so I can hardly complain. What do you think?
