In response to a Rauschenberg comment, I would like to emphasize the fact
that I believe art educators should have a voice, one with strength. This
is why I am astonished at the comment you made of Rauchenberg's sculpture.
If you do not agree with what is presented as "art" you should have logic or some reason behind your judgement. Slaughtering what many of us believe is art is not only insulting to others but evidence of a rash dismissal of what
you don't consider art. Rather than dismissing a piece of art, it would be
to your advantage to use it as a launching pad for a discussion of each
individual's definition of art, rather than excusing the work completly.
