A child could paint that!

‘A child could do a better painting than this’ or ‘If I can make it, I won’t call it art’ are just a couple of sentences people have heard or said themselves at some point in their lives.
Well, a modern art museum in Helsinki, Finland called Kiasma opened a debate on modern art. As the video reveals, the museum wanted people to put their money where their mouth is and instead of just saying ‘I could do better than that’, asked them to go ahead and actually do it. The winner would get the opportunity to have the art work showcased as part of the permanent collection in the museum.
Such a great way to spark interest in people, get them talking about art, creating their own art and maybe even change their perception of modern art along the way.
