art school

Dear artists on the rhizome raw list,

I can tell by the caliber of your work that many of you already have
art school degrees, but I came across this and it seemed too good to
keep to myself:

If anybody is inerested, just let me know and I will be happy to pass
on more information.

sincerely,
curt

    damn, the form fell off the bottom of the screen, but,
    Curt, could you be a referee for me if I apply for the course ?

    I sent one of those in while I was a freshman at college. I ran it through
    the printer after I did some ascii art on it, and stapled it to a bag of
    crackers. They had no reply.

    I love the spoof, but the form delivery is terrible. That swf needs to
    goooooo.

    But in regards to the actual school commercial, it was the first art school
    I ever heard of when I was six years old, while I was reading one of my
    brother's magazines... I turned the page and there it was: the famous
    turtle. And as funny as it may appear to be, the aesthetic and premise that
    made that school not only well known in certain areas of the U.S., but also
    in other parts of the world (I talk from experience here having lived in
    Latin America...), is the type of aesthetic that prevails in much of the
    global mainstream in relation to realistic rendering as a legitimate art
    form.

    Laughing matter it may be now, to some people, but this is a playful symptom
    why the average person in some (notice I say some here) cultures are not
    able to see the political importance and power in art practice at an
    everyday level. "It looks just like the real thing honey, so nice and
    pretty."

    That commerical has a lot more power than much of the artwork showing in
    galleries around the world... I wish I could laugh about that.
