ART Poll 441: I found this painted on a construction hoarding around a building site. Is this art?

Total votes: 4560

Yes: 2951 (64.7%)  
No: 1609 (35.3%)

I received several comments suspecting me of trickery by deliberately cropping these letters out of a larger word, or otherwise concealing the fact that this was some strictly utilitarian installation. But no, there was no trickery involved - it really was just the word "ART" painted on boards surrounding a construction site, with little stencilled fish around it. I only cropped it this way because I thought that made it a more interesting photo.

Someone made the comment that even if the original wasn't art, my act of deliberately composing it as a photograph created a photo that counted as art. Which I thought was very astute.

Art is interesting stuff.
