I have to admit I watched it - and I have to throw in my opinion
3 September 2020 | by jrneptuneSee all my reviews

First of, I am not a professional Artist. I have a daughter who is and some relatives who are.

I am not at all crazy about the Jack Ass movie series but as I watched this I can see he is brilliant in his own way. It was like watching the people that make that type of movie explain themselves in a rational and logical way.

I thought his idea that the sculpture itself might not need to be the art but what it does to the folks around them or how it makes them feel can be the art. I would agree with that.

I made me think which is what I appreciated the most I guess. A must watch? Probably not unless you are into art possibly.
