I think the gay arts columnist says it best. Even bad art is art. I believe art is something we all define in our own way, much like we do with religion. To me art is something that not only creates talk and controversy, but something that each individual sees differently. An example is my recent read to Catcher in they Rye. When I read it in high school it was about some loser kid who wore a stupid hat. Now I see Holden Caufield as a metaphor for Jesus. Kindness and compassion sends a kid to the funny farm rather than the cross. I have yet to find anyone else who sees it the same way, but then again I haven’t found anyone who reads books like that anymore to discuss it with.
