Do you people just not 'get' art?

Sure, the yarn or money to buy the yarn could have been used to help the homeless, but then it wouldn't be art. The metal and money for the bull statue could have been used to help the poor and unfortunate as well, couldn't it? Why didn't Warhol just screen print fabric for the homeless rather than canvases for museums?

At least this art drew nationwide attention to a good issue, as well as encourage debate about how we're allowed to interact with the cities we live in and what is and isn't vandalism. As a former "guerrilla artist" myself, I'm really glad to see this make the news, as well as very disappointed in a lot of commenters, especially on the CNN site.
