Art is not always idealized

At an art auction in New York, two vacuum cleaners encased in Plexiglas with fluorescent lighting tubes were sold for $1 million.

Entitled "New Hoover Quick-Broom & New Hoover Celebrity IV," the 1980 creation elevated the ordinary household object to art, it said in the paper.

I sold my mom's old Electrolux after we closed up the house, but I'm pretty sure right now there's a dirty and dusty nonworking Dirt Devil sitting out in my garage, so that's where I'll be the rest of the day, looking for that and some of those other ordinary household objects that I can sell for some of that groovy artiste collector cash.
