Does modern art rock your boat or are you something of a traditionalist at heart? what does “modern art” mean to you?

This week’s challenge by the Daily Post was to share a photo of something that is a work of art to us. “It could be some actual “art,” like a painting by your grandmother or the misshapen but perfect clay sculpture your child brought home from kindergarden, or something most people wouldn’t consider beautiful at all, but that has meaning to you. The important thing is that it’s art in your eyes”.
