Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Yesterday, we told you about "The Hotel Rehearsal," a floating hotel room/art piece available for rent at $50,000 per night. After perusing photos of this unusual creation, a slew of folks shared their thoughts about its artistic value, and not all of them were impressed. Take, for instance, this reader.

get-a-life writes:

If this is "art" then I'm going to find a cardboard box to rent out to some dumb ass rich guy for $50,000 and call myself an artist too! These "artists" can be so out of touch with reality sometimes it makes me want to punch a baby when I see the things they do. I love the Curtis. I can't believe they went along with this yuppy bullshit. Give me a break.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
