Goldsworthy!

Benton. I maintain that Goldsworthy is "meh".

Hate to vote against either of these dudes, but ... Benton.

Benton's leave me a little nauseous. Goldsworthy!

Aw maaaan, I like both. I guess I like Thomas Hart Benton more though.

Nora: I like both

Elliott: Benton makes people that look like they're made of plastic. I like them.

We did do a good job with the play-in tournament, didn't we? I do admire Benton's murals, but I'll go for Goldsworthy.

Susan says "Benton. I love Goldsworthy too & have even walked along the sinuous fence on a beautiful fall day at Storm King Art Center, up the Hudson. And seen "Rivers and Tides" twice."

Oh! Hard.

Candida said...

Goldsworthy.

Well, in retrospect it strikes me that I really prefer... but no, one of my personal rules is that once the counting is done I can't do anything to mess with my own vote. Or in this case, my own lack of vote. Which means that with me on the sidelines, Thomas Hart Benton and Andy Goldsworthy tie with six votes apiece. So! We will proceed to mix them up against The great Kandinsky/Klee tie of ought fifteen!
