The Walker Art Center, a modern art museum in Minneapolis, tested the boundaries of legitimate art at the first film festival dedicated to, well, online cat videos.
The show included 70 videos of kitty high jinks over 60 minutes (take a moment to let that sink in). Included were the "Keyboard Cat" and "Very Angry Cat," which have racked up more than 100 million views on YouTube between them.
A crowd of 10,000 people (and a few leashed cats) gathered Thursday night for the outdoor feline fest at the Walker, where the works of Frank Gehry and Joseph Cornell have been displayed.
Organizers called the Internet Cat Video Film Festival an artistic as well as a social experiment that questioned if the guilty pleasures viewed in private could translate to a public affair.
