I have to disagree, I think Steve hit the nail on the head with this photo
If you interpret the meaning of these people looking at art, then the OOF
people in the picture are shown in a confused state, which represents the
world wide mass art audience in general, and their lack of understanding art
(myself included). Look at how the OOF people are all standing in a
different direction. The guy with the camera represents the informed
minority along with the girl beside him.

My .02 cents.
