Would this be a good idea? Is this some stupid idea? Or is it the newest Olympic event? You tell me!

Well, they used to do arts in the Olympic summer games. There were a few different writing/literary categories, architecture, music, painting... sculpture, I think. They stopped doing it in the 50s because artists were determined to be professionals and the olympics are supposed to be about amateur acheivement. And they still do a Cultural Olympics kind of thing that accompany the games, but separate from them.

No, I'm not wild about it. There would need to be a good reason.
