The National Endowment for the Arts. Noble enough in its intent, but in practice they end up subsidizing a good deal of blasphemous, obscene, or otherwise disgusting filth in place of anything I can recognize as art. To be fair, they get it right sometimes, but it doesn't take a rocket surgeon to figure out Piss Christ shouldn't have gotten government money.
There isn't much fine art these days that's worth a damn. Seems like everyone with a talent for it goes commercial instead and a thousand years from now our culture will be remembered for billboards.
