A knock-out for highbrow art

A simple ice sculpture generates more interest and more interaction than any highbrow art I ever saw.
I was positively surprised but also shocked. Are we doing it wrong? What can we learn from this?
Ice is a fascinating substance, and its fragility in public space is sure to generate interest. But could "real" art ever approach this effect? Probably a Jeff Koons could have the same effect.
I don't know what to make of this. (Rotterdam, Koopgoot)

  1. Petr, Great candid photography. Each photo really tells a story. I especially like the ones where the parents are interacting with their children.
