Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

heh. We just watched 3 hours of Bob Ross. But we also spent a couple of days with Tibetan monks making a mandala, praying, singing, etc.

There's nothing quite like sculpture though. Musée Rodin, FTW! musee-rodin.fr

Please do not increment my Quality Posts count. 69 is a good place to be. ;-)

Bob Ross was awesome! I still remember being a kid watching him paint and every once in a while I'd be thinking to myself "nope, that ones not going to work out Bob...I don't know what you're going for there" and then he'd pull out a smaller brush and transform it into something great.

Sculptures. It is the only medium which requires destruction in order for creation. It requires the most spatial acuity out of all art forms. It is also the only one that does not allow for mistakes to be made. It is the only art form that requires perfection.

Watching someone take just a hammer and chisel to a solid block of marble and convert it into a piece of art is a very special thing to witness.

I appreciate fine arts, and create art, but I'm not really a fan of going out of my way to look at it. Do movies count?

I don't know, in art class I messed up a sculpture I was working on, and I just made everything smaller. I could have just gotten lucky that time though.

Just watching regular people dance. (Not dancing with the stars.) Especially an older couple who have been dancing for years together deserves a second look.

Live theatre. A little ridiculous that it wasn't included.

Television and film for motion, and Photography for static. Sorry, i really just have no attention span and get off track easily, I like a medium that allows me to go get a sandwich and not miss much.

I have to go with Theatre/Movies, it's a beautiful combination of many art forms.
