I guess I better make a lot of money before I die, too.
This is fun, at least for you art nerds out there. The Guardian makes a list of twenty artworks to see before you die. (Via Tyler) Sadly, and perhaps unsurprisingly, I only know for sure that I've seen one of them, when I was in Paris a few years ago. Naturally, they're all in foreign locales like The Hague, South Africa, and Houston, Texas. Although I've been to MoMA, it was a very long time ago and I just can't picture those pieces listed (as in, picture myself standing there examining them in person). Which isn't to say I haven't seen some amazing stuff, and even before I started writing about art (like, almost a whole year now!) couldn't leave a new town without visiting their art museum. By the by, the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires is a must-see if you find yourself in Argentina. The regional artists will impress you as much as the Picassos and Rodins.
The subsequent comment thread on the article is a little precious, if you want to wade through it. Some of them offer up some good suggestions with interesting discussion, but the snobby know-it-alls get in the game, since anonymous comment threads are always the best place to show what an out-of-touch egomaniac you are. Highly recommended reading, by all accounts.
