In response to last week's letters concerning the proposed sculpture on Budleigh beach, I would like to say I found them very personal, almost an attack on the artist herself. Two of the letters had been written by other artists, which made me think they were not so much protesting about the sculpture, more that they had not been asked to do it.As to GCSE art students, I'm sure any of them could have come up with an idea of displaying a dirty, unmade bed and calling it art and they would have been laughed at. However, it didn't do Tracy Emin's career any harm.No matter what is proposed for Budleigh, be it modern or traditional, it always causes an outcry, but sometimes change can be good and may even increase visitor numbers to the town, which can only benefit many businesses and organisations.P Hadley,4 Clarence Road, Budleigh Salterton.
