Guy Leaves Glasses On The Museum Floor, People Think It’s Art

Posted on Art 48

What makes art… art? Is it the technique? Maybe the idea behind it? Or maybe just the location? That’s what you could take away from a practical joke by a couple of teens in one of San Francisco’s art galleries.

The pranksters known on Twitter as @TJCruda and @k_vinnn were getting a bit bored in the Museum of Modern Art, so they decided to add an exhibit of their own. They put a pair of glasses on the floor next to the information card and to their surprise, visitors took it for an actual piece of art!

Art lovers started to examine the glasses and even take pictures of it, while the pranksters were busy tweeting about their hilarious experiment. By now their tweets have been shared more than 40,000 times! Pf, and who says people don’t appreciate modern art.
