From the urinal in the men’s room at Catholic TV!

What’s modern art all about? Watch the latest episode of the series The Way of Beauty, here. And yes, I really do mean the men’s room – where else would you find a urinal?

Well, according to your show one could find a urinal at a museum!

Actually there is more here than Dave described in his piece. There is so called pop art out there that would better be termed “shock art.” Its sole (soul) purpose is to generate a gut reaction, and a negative one at that. If it gets someone to a laugh, it is all the more powerful. CS Lewis talks to this “humor” in Screwtape Letters…Get someone to snicker at an offcolor/uncharitable joke and he (the devil) wins. So too with art.
There was an exhibit of Mary as a urinal a few years back…how sad
I just GOOGLE searched image (urinal Mary) and there it is—proof of what David described.
God bless this Theology of Beauty…the world needs it.

I’ve always regarded Duchamp’s urinal as a pis* take.
