I get that feeling a lot! And speaking of the Emporer's New Clothes: There is a current exhibit that features performance art by live nudes in the top levels. My wife walked right by the Notices that warned that there were nude models in the hall, and got quite a surprise when she got there!
We spent quite a bit of time on the trip home, debating what the art meant, and what the artist intended (which, some will argue, is the whole point to art after all). We came to two different conclusions, which were clearly (if you knew us) based on our own personal perceptions and opinions. I still think she was wrong!
