Is it art? Eyeglasses on museum floor began as teenagers’ prank

Kevin then placed his Burberry glasses on the floor beneath a placard describing the theme of the gallery. He said neither he nor TJ did anything to influence museum visitors, such as standing around and looking at the glasses.

Within about three minutes, people appeared to be viewing their handiwork as bona fide art, though Kevin said that without his glasses, he could not see what was happening too well…

Kevin, who will be a junior in high school in the fall, said that when art is more abstract, it is more difficult to interpret and he loses interest.

TJ, who plans to attend community college in the fall, said the two did not get to see all of the museum’s exhibits and would probably visit again.
