Man's comment card echoes thoughts of many at art museum

For some, a trip to the art museum means and experience filled with wonder and majesty. For others, it is the most boring way to spend a day, and that's the sentiment that one man expressed on a comment card of a London-area museum.

Reddit user mar480 posted an image of a comment card he found at the Tate Modern in London, which read, "My wife made me come here, and I'm not convinced this isn't a joke."

Other Reddit users chimed in with experiences of their own at art museums.

"When I was in the Saatchi Gallery a few months back, there was one exhibit which was literally just boxes and ladders laid out to look like it was an exhibit, which was waiting to be put together," Reddit user Gisschace wrote. "I am pretty sure the artist was taking the (expletive) with that one."

Another user said that the user should "frame the note, and boom, you got yourself another piece of modern art!"

Not all users were against the piece.

One man wrote that "some people would argue that since it provoked a reaction of emotion," -- even though negative -- "it must be good art."

For centuries, she's been smiling at us. Maybe thinking, 'you have no idea who I am'?

Mona Lisa. Well, researchers trying to identify the woman who modeled for Leonardo da Vinci's famous painting may have come across a critical clue. (Via Wikimedia Commons / Musee du Louvre)

Fox News reports researchers have started DNA tests on a skeleton found in a church in Florence, Italy. 

What they're trying to do is link the skeleton to other recently discovered bones — bones believed to be belong to the model's descendants. 

This is all based on the theory that the model for Mona Lisa was Lisa Gherardini, a noblewoman who lived near da Vinci. (Via euronews)

And as The Wall Street Journal reports, if the DNA tests are positive, if this skeleton is Gherardini, the researchers plan to make a computer-generated reconstruction of her face.

And that could solve an age-old mystery. Who is the woman behind the smile? The DNA results are expected by May or June. (Via Wikimedia Commons / Musee du Louvre)

Still, some speculate da Vinci could have used several models over a period of years for the painting. In which case — might need to get Dan Brown on the phone or something.
