Priceless Art or Ikea?

One of my favorite comments to hear around an art museum is, “My kid could do that.” I also like, “A monkey could do that.” The website Reverent.org puts artistic wet blankets to the test, asking them to tell the difference between fine art and art made by apes. Other fun quizzes ask people to differentiate between priceless artwork and cheap furniture and between William Faulkner’s prose and badly translated German.
