1981
Dimensions: 49 by 39 cm, framed.
Media: color photograph.

Unsolicited scene taken in a museum. According to the artist: “I came into a room in the St. Louis Art Museum and saw a little boy in a red shirt that had the same color of shirt as the painting in the background. He swung around and stood before me as you see him. I noticed there were buckets to catch water from a leak in the ceiling. I immediately saw the irony and named the photo “Which One Is Not a Work of Art?””
