Musea E-mail Club #441: Art Olympics

Musea E-mail Club #441: Art Olympics
The Olympics are over. It was an event that I enjoyed
watching a lot.
But each time it comes around, I think about what I
wrote many years ago in an essay. And that is: WE
NEED AN ARTS OLYMPICS TOO!

Let’s revisit that idea.
I suggest an arts olympics (in the off years when
there is no athletic olympics) with the same basic set
up as the regular olympics.

I suggest that it too offer gold, silver, and bronze
medals to the best artists in the world, in assorted
arts.

Here are the categories that I came up with.

1a Short prose – short story
1b. Long prose – novel

2a Short poem
2b. Long poem – epic

3a Short play – one act
3b Long play – 2 or more acts.

4a Short music vocal – song
4b Long music vocal – choral work / opera

5a Short music instrumental
5b Long music instrumental – symphony

6a Painting – 2d art
6b Sculpture – 3d art

7a Short film or TV show fiction
7b Long film or TV show fiction

8a Short film or TV show – non fiction
8b Long film or TV show – non fiction

9a Short essay
9b Long essay

10a Handcrafted Art Object – small – jewelry size
10b Handcrafted Art Object medium – fits on a table
top
10c Handcrafted Art Object large

11a Dance – single
11b Dance – couple
11c Dance – group

12 Large Scale Spectacle or Pageant

What do you think? Did I miss an important category?
Would you like to take part or watch a world
competition in assorted arts?
