What is Art?

Fountain by Marcel Duchamp, Indiana University Art Museum.

In 1917 French Dadaist artist turned the art world on it's ear when he exhibited this piece signed by "R.Mutt." He said Mr. Mutt did not need to create the object, his mere choice of it and applying his signature could serve as its consideration as art. Thus began a movement known as Found Object.

I like Marcel Duchamp's The Fountain. Duchamp was very influential for later artists and still influences artists today.
