Duchamp and MoronArt2- CAC's Art Thread

With the Smithsonian subversives in the news, I bring you an oldie-but-goodie from Duchamp, who makes the modern mischief-makers look like bedwetting pantspoopers.

For generations, many tried to figure out why the lady in da Vinci's Mona Lisa has that unforgettable smile.

Marcel gave us a very moronesque answer to open tonight's thread:

L.H.O.O.Q. Marcel Duchamp, 1919.

Subversion done with a wink and a nod is timeless.

Subversion done with dung and disgust is a dust trap.

Now onto this weeks' moron art submissions.

Moron Sobek gets his monotheism on:

As always, if you wish to have your work shown here, shoot me an email HERE and be sure to include your moron handle, the title, dimensions, medium, year, and a link to more stuff if you have it.

Closing the thread to the night, I present what happens when Frank Stella has his way with a BMW:
