    I didn't read the article for fear of taking a look at a banana taped to a wall a second time, but in the article I read, my favorite part was "The banana was meant to be eaten - showing it can easily be replaced."

    Art is a conversation between elites. And some elites have more money than sense.

    I'll add that much of art is akin to autograph collecting. If some work attracts
    attention in the right crowd....one both vaunted & wealthy....then it occupies
    a moment in their shared history. To own that unique icon confers value,
    rarity, recognition, status, & acceptance upon the owner. Think of it as
    the price of admission to a club.
    The interested reader might look up the brilliant work of Dan Flavin, a darling
    of the New York art world for mounting a fluorescent light to a wall at a 45
    degree angle. Critics were agog at his originality & significance to modern art.
    (Yes, I saw it exhibited. I was indeed astounded....but perhaps not as the
    artist intended.)
