The reason why I chose this article from the New York Times was because it was an incident that happened due to a protest at a museum. Using art as an example of not caring about what’s happening in the “real world.” The artist that was affected and that was used as an example in this protest was, Vincent van Gogh, who is also one of my favorite artists. I learned his artwork was very personal to him. As an artist who is also inspired by this former artist, I empathize with both the protesters and Vincent Van Gogh.
