Contemporary Art

Why do so many people hate contemporary or modern art?

Actually, I don't think as many people hate modern art, but many people confuse contemporary art with modern art, so I thought I better include both.

Yes I agree with the above answer. Most people think of art as being something "pretty"- portraits, landscapes, something nice to look at. When modern and contemporary artists start to create things that make people think, that people cannot instantly recognize or get a grasp on, it is dismissed as not even being art.
