Question of the day

Oct 07, 2015

Our last question asked: Speaking of protests, why are some folks picketing outside Boston's Museum of Fine Arts? They're playfully protesting the museum's display of paintings by Renoir, whose work they say is “literally awful.”

Congratulations to Laura Alix of Banker & Tradesman for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable mentions go out to Jason HenselMark PoepselCharlotte LoBuono (who notes "Art is in the eye of the beholder"), Claudine LaforceChris BackeBrian Smith (who suggests it's "Nothing personal"), Hollywood HighlandsRobin Epley (who remarks "Having been there many a time, my first choice to picket would be the snooty docents" and adds "No but srsly, who actually hates Renoir? Mumble something incoherently & move down the hall"), Chuck TanowitzMartin Berliner (who guesses "and probably don't like Basquiat, either"), Carissa Marie Ryan (whose answer was "ReNOir,"), Tom RealeJohn D'Anna (who quotes one of their chants "Put some fingers on those hands! Give us work by Paul Gauguin!" then observes this is "Truly a First World problem"), Ken Walker (who shares that the rally "mostly bewildered passersby"), Cindi LashMark Gibbs (who quips "nudes at eleven") and Ron Casalotti for all getting that exactly right, as well.

As for today's question, here it is: Washington Post's Philip Bump​ is suggesting that we make all our own what?
