Today we lighten up, just in time for the holiday. Your art-related jokes, puns and anecdotes are requested. I'll start.
Three artists walk into a bar
. Rachel Whiteread makes a cast of it and shows it at the Tate Modern
. Thomas Kinkaid stays for three days and drinks himself to death
. Marina Abramovic sits there for two-and-a-half months and doesn't say a word
What’s the difference between an artist and a trash collector?
The artist takes out her own trash. The trash collector makes $50,000 a year with sick days and benefits and a retirement income at the end of 30 years.
.How many artists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
.Twenty five thousand
. 12 to debate the merits of incandescent versus complact fluorescent
. 2 to get the ladder
. 1 to actually change the lightbulb
. 8 to turn it into a performance in a Bushwick pop-up
. 30 to attend the performance
. 15 to Tweet about it
. 3 to blog about it
. Jerry Saltz to post about it in Facebook
