Art is that which we decide to deem as such. Art is nothing without appreciation. Art can exist with or without the artist. It is our intent in creating or in viewing that defines "ART"; and it can only be a personal intent.

Tiffany says...
Art is one's emotions to life, and the things surrounding that person. I feel really that there can be more than one meaning for art. It's just the communication to the viewer and the world.

esmarelda (nastyharpy[]hotmail.com) says...
Art is merely a concept that was created to describe man made objects, markings or sounds that were used socially rather than in a completely utalitarian way. The word "art" that originally in our culture described such things has grown a number of connotations which give the concept a seemingly amorphous and spiritual nature. This often leads people to believe that art is in some way something other than material thing, like some kind of "force." Art is really merely an overused word that describes many different things. Just as a "seat" is both a bottom and a chair. Art is both communication and personal therapy but this does not mean that these two aspects are neccesarally one thing or contain "art" as some amorphous quality. Thats just fuzzy thinking. Isn't it?

C. Price (drasstic[]yahoo.com) says...
Maybe something like: art is a symbolic representation of someone's
ideas, emotions, or thoughts in general, intended to convey this, or
evoke a similar state in another. This only raises a billion other
questions (many revolve around the word 'intend'). But hey, you
asked!

Randall Baker (philosopherkingrb[]msn.com) says...
Art is NOT "everything," or "anything you see," as some people claim. To say this is to rob the word of any meaning. For if "everything" is art, then saying, "this is art," says nothing more than "this is."
As to a positive definition, art has two functions: it is an application of certain principles to a specific medium, and it is the expression of thoughts and feelings. In the first case, it is the mastering of techniques, such as color, balance, tone, harmony, meter, etc. This is why Beethoven is art, even though it may make no emotional impression upon you at all. This is the stuff that requires some education to appreciate, the stuff most people nowadays do not appreciate. This is also why a John Woo film, particularly Face Off, can be art. The second function involves inspring emotions or provoking thought. This is why Emily Dickenson is art, even though she had no grasp of the technical devices of poetry beyond an intuitive one. It is also why Saving Private Ryan is art.
Occasionally, a work achieves both, and this is great art. Schindler's List (the movie) is great art. Grapes of Wrath (the book) is great art. Michaelangelo's Moses is great art. All of these showed the asthetic mastery of the techniques used in the medium, and further they used these techniques to inspire.
Finally, what makes art wonderful is that it is creation (whatever that means - you didn't ask). In this way, it is one of the ways that man is made in God's image, and is impossibly fantanstic and new, and will be for as long as we exist on this planet.

Asif Huq (ahmed.huq[]magd.ox.ac.uk) says...
Art is a legal drug, arousing an atmospheric sensuality which adorns the recipient of the image. The image provides a window to the subconscious. The subsconcious stores and scrambles those subtle yet inexplicably resonant images derived from daily experience, often collating them in the form of a dream. Art performs the same function. Thus art is both a drug and a dream.

marc david leviton (marc.leviton[]worldnet.att.net) says...
art is the search for who we are. it is the expression of ourselves from within and without.
perhaps, being an artist is being like god, as if we have been blessed or damned to have to create. as if we have been givin an extra spark from god to create as it does and have the human race judge us for our choices.
or perhaps, art is really like expelling gas in a public forum. some people get offended, while others like it or just tolerate it and hang around. no matter what it has gotten the attention of the room.

Bill Pulver 77342 says...
Art is as real as it is fake. The expression of one's point of view which either coincides with others or depicts the virtues they belevel in their assortment of daily guidances life's formalities enables them definition. Of course it is man-made, but it is perceptual beyond the normal cognition of the ordinary. Art is how I internally view the painting, or how I feel mentally/physically/spiritually after hearing the music, how I interpret what the artist is trying to relay. Art is sensual.

Art is not a subjective experience of the creator. Art is a subjective experience in the audience. Now, the creator may be part of (or, indeed, comprise the whole of) the audience, but ultimately when a creation stops being merely an increase in entropy and starts being art, it has elicited a response within the audience. The degree to which this response is ennobling, informative, or even that desired by the creator is merely a measure of the quality of the artistic work.

Art is not anything until it is judged by the public. It is something you create that exhibits
one's feelings or emotions, or just something that looks good and done because you had to for class.
So many things are called art, but my opinion is that art is something produced by one's hands, and mind.
Let it be a drawing, painting, photograph, sculture. Things that are found in galleries. It must be
creative and original, and if a you can capture the viewers attention for more than 10 sec. you know
its art.

Eric Coker says...
The definition of art only seems to be elusive because it is a gift term. A painter has no right to call their own works "art" or to call themselves an "artist." These are terms that have to be bestowed by others, based on their appreciation of the person's creative expression of an idea.

It is perfectly possible for something to be "art" to one person but not to another. As a result, the term "art" is often used to label a creative endeavor that will be appreciated by most people. Instead of asking ourselves "What is art?", it would be more productive to look at specific works and ask ourselves "Is this art?".

Art can be anything. The major question is what is good art. Is good art

that again and again and again.

Generally, art is an effort to contextualize our existence. Through an act of representation, then, it is hoped, the perceiver of that representation might, in fact, see the world and their relation to it, in an entirely new way. Art is the attempt to define ourselves. In the traditional sense, art is the striving for beauty. Most of us have forgotten this. This act of constantly striving for Beauty, for some, is the highest most worthwhile activity we can engage in - as life is short - and Beauty makes life worth living. Art is necessary.

Arne (Gahada[]swns.net) says...
Arguments over what is (painting?) and what isn't (photography?) art ignore the basic meaning.
Art is the representation of an idea.
It does not have to be the artist's intended idea since there can be unintentional art.
It does not exclude photography since a photograph is a representation of an idea; if you close your eyes and snap a photo of something you will not be conveying your idea but when you look at the print you will see that an idea has indeed been conveyed, even if it is the gravel under your feet.
It includes poetry, literature, dance, collage, etc etc.
What we get entangled in is the question of the worth of the art.
Is it good art?
Is it bad art?
A consensus or an individual opinion can assign value but that is not quantifiable.
What we can quantify is whether art is succesful in conveying the artist's (or another's) idea.
But to list the criteria for "successful art" is fought with the pitfalls of politics and opinion.
Art can be defined by logic.
Art cannot be judged by logic, at least on this planet.
I am a "realistic" sculptor.
Good luck.

Art is an expression by the human hand rendering something measurably banal, as something beautiful, (beauty being always a reward for our existence). Art commands an audience, commands intrepretation-- and exists, therefore, as something absolute. Art is always technically evidence of an inspiration: the better the work, the stronger it defies duplication.
"Insouciance" is art. "Lack of concern" is not.

But it's not art unless someone with the power to annoint it as such believes in me, buys into my vision, and accepts my reasons for claiming it as art. Then it aquires value as a commodity and is coveted. I paint. My paintings are not art until someone who is accepted by the illuminati as knowing what art is accepts my claim for my work as being art, says O.K., I see that, and says it's art. Sublimnity in self expression exists apart from this kind of recognition, certainly. But if you want to make a living or be recognized by those who have the power, petition the illuminati. The title Art is not claimed, it is bestowed.

Jon Genzales (jt.genzales[]hotmail.com) says...
Any brief definition of art would oversimplify the matter, but we
can say that all the definitions offered over the centuries include
some notion of human agency, whether through manual skills (as in the
art of sailing or painting or photography), intellectual manipulation
(as in the art of politics), or public or personal expression (as in
the art of conversation). Recall that the word is etymologically
related to artificial -- i.e., produced by human beings.
Since this embraces many types of production that are not
conventionally deemed to be art, perhaps a better term for them
would be visual culture. This would explain why certain
preindustrial cultures produce objects which Eurocentric interests
characterize as art, even though the producing culture has no
linguistic term to differentiate these objects from utilitarian
artifacts. Having said that, we are still left with a class of
objects, ideas and activities that are held to be separate or
special in some way. Even those things which become art even though
they are not altered in any material way -- e.g., readymades -- are
accorded some special status in a describable way. Because of this
complexity, writers have developed a variety of ways to characterize
the art impulse. Ellen Dissanayake's What is Art For? lists these as
follows (in no particular order):

the product of conscious intention,
a self rewarding activity,
a tendency to unite dissimilar things,
a concern with change and variety,
the aesthetic exploitation of familiarity vs. surprise,
the aesthetic exploitation of tension vs. release,
the imposition of order on disorder,
the creation of illusions,
an indulgence in sensuousness,
the exhibition of skill,
a desire to convey meanings,
an indulgence in fantasy,
the aggrandizement of self or others,
illustration,
the heightening of existence,
revelation,
personal adornment or embellishment,
therapy,
the giving of meaning to life,
the generation of unselfconscious experience,
the provision of paradigms of order and/or disorder,
training in the perception of reality

como si estubiera ocurriendo realmente;
Esta situacin ha llegado a tal extremo,
que ya no s distinguir si el real o n.
Mis ojos ya no miran como antes,
ahora todo lo veo bajo escalas graduadas;
Y en este ambiente ensordecedor,
mi respiracin se hace lenta
hasta el extremo de sentir que no respiro
que estoy suspendido en una pompa,
en una esfera de cristal.
As pasan varios minutos, varias horas,
a veces creo que son varios das,
hasta que rompo en una bocanada desmesurada de aire,
y todo mi cuerpo se llena de un oxgeno
que aniquila mis pensamientos.

being creative means to see an object....feel it ...visualize it ...make it's images with help of your imagination and blend these images with your feelings of love, happiness, joys and sorrows....and then create what you got in the end. art is creating ...and creating is to appreciate God and His work...to me art is like worshipping God and a meduim of communicating with him .

Jon Elliott (Alterite[]aol.com) says...
To say that art "is" anything seems to be irrelivant. Things can only "appear to be", and saying that art "is" something seems to be arbitrary name calling. Giving things arbitrary definitions and giving them arbitrary names, and then beliveing that these names and definitions have any corilation to some universal definition of "reality", (a definition that applies to all), is a futile exercise. And yet, the words I use at this moment are as a result of this futile exercise. Art and all other forms of language, seem to be a futile attempt to communicate reality. Reality appears to be a construct of the mind and has been givin many definitions. No single or mulitiple definition of reality can ever be the "Truth". The only "truth" is that there seems to be no truth. So to me art, as well as all other languages, serves as a constant reminder that there is nothing, no reality, no truthes.
This I consider valuable. Arbitrary name calling and subsequent arguments over which name or definition "is" the "Truth", has been the root cause of much conflict between ourselves. Obviously not the cause of all conflict, greed has been one of the many other instigators for example, but certainly it seems to divide people. People argue about what is the "True" definition of almost everything. People are often willing to kill and die over these definitions. There is no "True" definition for art.

Between the beholder and the article, there are two attempts: one
is that the beholder tries to perceive it on the deepest level, the
other is that the art tries to keep its identity in itself. The
stronger one side wills to achieve its aim, the more interesting the
art piece becomes. Therefore art is a war of attrition.

Andrea Ruggiero (ruggie2_andr[]bentley.edu) says...
Art id any form of expression that someone can create. Whether or not it's beautiful to me says nothing. Art is in the eye of the beholder. I create art, but you might think of it as anything but. Art is found in nature as well as through peoples interpurtations of it. Art is anything that someone can express that enables someone to have an emotion.

Erin Neff (nefferin[]hotmail.com) says...
Anything that is beautiful to the viewer and/or creats emotion
in the viewer is what I consider art. GOod art is art where the artist spends time and
has ability. For example, I would consider cave paintings art because
it creates emotion to me, as the viewer, knowing that these cave men
were so primative, yet, discovered such an advanced technique of comm-
unication (just the fact that they discovered the ways of communication
and a way to make paint) Also, that they had to go through so much
in order to make these paintings (dark and getting into the caves).
I would consider a game of chess art- the geometric structure and the
thought (emotion) it creates is beautiful. I gave this question much
thought, and have come up with this definition that should work with
the majority of society. It is important, when finding the right
definition, that having an open mind because the subject of art is
not a "cut and dry" subject and it includes a world of opinions.
A question you may ask- is a beautiful meadow considered art? well,
is beautiful to me. Its creater- who ever you consider God- or who
ever you believe created the world...I could go on forever, giving you
every example known to man, but, I need to get back to my web surfing!

Art is measured by a multitude of words, ideas, theories, and philosophies.
I think art is defined by the individual that makes the arbitrary judgement as to whether it is art or not.
So, I am of the opinion that the standards are subjective.
I think the deepest meanings are for the artist, most likely unbeknown to the onlooker.

To me, art is something best defined as just existing. If it comes

Art is a collection of patterns which evoke a directed change in
the mental state of a person perceiving them. Art has degrees of

had intended.

Art is free.

Art is a big bus, and everybody is free to ride.
Inside the bus, there is a steering wheel to every seat.
Still the bus drives one way.
Some passengers just sit and watch the landscape rolling by.
Others talk, discuss and critisize.
There a bus-riders staring into a void, keeping themselves in a shell,
focus on their own stuff.
A few of the passengers a sleeping.
2 are getting carsick, and puke out the window.
" did you see that " yells one of them "that is art, -right there."
The discussion panel turns its attention to the carsick.
a man sitting in the back i scribbling in his notebook.
There are passengers who wants to get off the bus.
Passengers who insists that they are steering the bus.
Passengers hanging on the outside of the bus with spraycans
in their hands.
Passengers that are on for the ride.
Blind Passengers.
Some passengers, crawling around inside the bus, tearing out seats to make a sculpture
in the middle section, coming up with crazy ideas on how to change the whole outlook
of the bus. Making strange designs.
Should i change into a;
Submarine?
Banana?
Airplane?
Ufo?
Naked woman?
Penis?
A cookie?
a Cartoon character?
Etc...

(Finally) there are passengers unsatisfied with the landscape outside,
but theyll have to be patient , cus the bus is driving in its own
pace. Itll eventually reach new territory.

The End.

Art is undefined now. It has a olace and a measure which affects, and has effect. I asked my friend Ray the other day, but he was piss-assed drunk. Perhaps it is swearing where it is legal. I think than that it is all around us, but it is undefined. Art does have an inner-meraning. It comes, . . . it also goes. Because art may come and go, it keeps nameless (without definition). 9 Mac Gregor Court. There is a time and place for everything. Waldwick. And art has both, time and Place. New Jersey. To define art as a time, or a place would eliminate all of the art coming before and after, wouldn't it. 07463. Deciphering the wishes of the world can not be served in either a dat or a month, a time, or a place, but when it does, it is the individual which decides. That was my addrexs fo all the world to poinder, as that is what may pnder me, and the art world. Come to http://ultrix.ramapo.edu/~kkaeumle where there is some art, today. That is today there is art. Whiuch is one definition to art, a sense that can be shared, Yeah>
