If you put a frame around it, is it art?

Yes, folks in Chelsea, Mich., decided to hang frames around mundane objects in an alley, thus elevating them to the status of art.

On the one hand, I yawn and think, what an old and tired idea.

On the other hand, anything that coerces people look at their surroundings in a different light--to look for forms, shapes, aesthetic values in objects otherwise ignored--is to be admired.
