Art vs. Art... is it WRONG?

My friends went to an Art vs. Art competition last Friday night. 

In one of these competitions artists submit paintings that are then voted on by a crowd of people.  The winning paintings are bought.  The losers are submitted to the "wheel of death" which determines how they will be destroyed.  Death by saw was the crowd's favorite.

Is this wrong I ask you?

My gut says yes, this is so counterproductive.  Why create something when a mob could have it chopped to bits?  (And isn't this saw business in front of a bunch of people dangerous? The mom in me can't help but think this is a bad idea.)

But then... I used to wax philosophical that art is about the process not the product. 

Apparently it was a fun event.
