    I have a feeling this is going to turn into another "what is art" thread...

    I think it's only fair. Now we have an art exhibit both blind and seeing can enjoy equally.

    I think it's safe to restrict the definition to things you can see.
    "Astronomy offers an aesthetic indulgence not duplicated in any other field. This is not an academic or hypothetical attraction and should require no apologies, for the beauty to be found in the skies has been universally appreciated for unrecorded centuries."

    They should sneak in a mannikin and label it "The emperors robes" or something...

    I don't always necessarily agree (in general the answer is yes) but that is an argument that has been retread several times here before and has gotten nowhere. I'm going to cite 4'33" as a musical equivalent and leave it at that.

    Edit: Just remembered that Yves Klein basically did the same thing some 50 years ago. If anything, I'd be more upset at the fact that these artists seemed to have rehashed that idea. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yves_Klein#The_Void
