Remembering Art Critic Arthur Danto
"There is a phrase that appears and reappears in the essays of Arthur Danto. That phrase is "the miraculousness of the commonplace." Danto wanted to feel that miracle. But he realized that he wasn't going to feel it by pretending that we are still surrounded by objects of high aesthetic beauty." n+one 11/11/13
