Burning Down the (replica) House

I'm not sure what to make of this. Artist Chris Larson built a replica of an iconic mid-century house...so he could burn it down in public.


Highlights of yesterday's visit to the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art in Salt Lake City:

1. You may have seen this contemporary painting on the web, but I got to see
the glorious original, along with some counterparts.

2. Seeing Chris Burden's television commercials from the 1970s. Why was I never made aware of these before?  "Leonardo Da Vinci. Michelangelo. Rembrandt. Vincent Van Gogh. Pablo Picasso. Chris Burden." Brilliant!
