Richard Webster, another organiser of the event, added: "We haven't had much response yet from people. But things involving snails generally go rather slowly."
Not much response yet? Now there's a surprise - since when has art ever received much of a response in this country?
And if art doesn't get a response, then what hope is there for a half-witted, publicity seeking stunt like this claiming to be art? Done embalmed animals, done unmade beds. What else is there? I know! Let's paint a snail or two. Better do it in non-toxic, wash-off, paint though. Don't want to offend anyone like the Snails Rights lobby*
Right, gonna stop there before someone says they used public funding & I get into a real rant....
