This is the relatively new Brandhorst Museum in Munich. Although it's a private collection of many contemporary artists, a great deal of state money went into its construction. Many Andy Warhol and Cy Twombly pieces are in the permanent collection.
Still-Life (Hammer and Sickle) 1976 by Andy Warhol
I know some really see no point to Damien Hirst's art, and this won't likely sway those people in the least. This is his E.M.I. from 1989. It's exactly what it looks like: a medicine cabinet.
This might not jibe with your definition of art, but thought I'd post at least one picture that may or may not get by whatever censors Blogger has. It's a piece by a guy called Ron Mueck and it's called Mother and Child.
